Glass Bowl Centerpiece ‘Flowers & Berries’ by Deborah Timperley
‘Flower & Berries’ by Deborah Timperley come in two delicious colourways. Each delightful glass bowl centerpiece will enhance any decor with its juicy vibrancy.
The textured glass bowls are one of Deborah’s favourite ways of working. Highly textured fabrics are used to create the surface. Each glass bowl centerpiece features small handmade elements which are cast and fired. These small elements are then added in a second firing to make the abstract flower and berry bowls with gold lustre.
The edges are highly polished which highlights the colour and contrasts with the opacity of the textured glass.
Luxurious unique hand made art glass bowls.
Glass Bowl Centerpiece Artist
Deborah Timperley is an accomplished UK glass artist who has produced stunning glass artworks for over 20 years. Interestingly, Deborah’s first career was in the hospitality industry. However, an introduction from her mother to the beauty of stained glass led Deborah along a new path.
“My mother was passionate about art, and as part of her teacher training, she did a study on stained glass. I was taken to many churches and cathedrals to look at the windows as part of her research. I was only in junior school at the time, but the magnificence of the stained windows in Coventry Cathedral stayed with me. So, 20 or so years later I took a stained glass at evening classes in London and loved it!
I eventually stopped working with stained glass and instead studied for a degree in 3D Design at Middlesex University. I knew immediately that I had found my ‘groove’ as I could work across disciplines and with both glass and ceramics”.
Over two decades since gaining her degree, Deborah continues to enjoy making just as much. One look at her work is all you need to ‘feel’ the joy and creativity that has been poured into each and every piece.
For many years, Deborah worked from home but now has a workshop on the Borde Hill House and Garden Estate, West Sussex. The rural setting, down a little lane and in an old converted stable suit, Deborah, perfectly!
Deborah is a member of a number of professional bodies, and she has exhibited her work at numerous events, galleries and museums. Deborah’s awards include Winner of the Warm Glass Prize 2015 Category – Other Glass.
