Colourful Art Glass Ornaments ‘Ammonite’ By Sharon Korek
Sharon’s ammonite series of colourful art glass ornaments and sculptures are truly captivating.
Sapphire and Fuchsia have wondrous blue tones with a splash of clear glass, that gives a real fresh feel. The deep blue is like that of a warm sea. With glass pebbles resting at its base, like spray from a crashing wave.
Sapphire and Fuchsiais one of Sharon’s coloured glass ornaments that oozes calm and solitude. Clear rings are randomly placed around the blue ammonite. Perhaps to represent significant moments in time. What could the marking be? Possibly forget-me-nots of days gone by. Sapphire and Fuchsia are the mood and tone.

Sharon Korek took early retirement from lecturing in Law in 2014. She learnt how to cut, fuse and kiln form glass at a local university. Sharon pursued her interest with this knowledge and set up her own studio, in Hitchin, called Blossom Glassworks. The studio is now her, ‘home from home’.
Inspired by the natural world, Sharon takes her inspiration from nature in all its glorious colours and forms. Exploring the wider potential of glass fusing and casting she lets her imagination drive her creativity. Forging unique elements to include in her work, using kiln forming, ‘lost wax’ casting and vitrigraph techniques. Resulting in sculptural pieces, wall panels, splashbacks and functional items.
Sharon’s work has been exhibited in several national events including, The Chelsea Art Show, Handmade in Britain at Chelsea and Living Crafts.
‘Glass is an exciting and versatile material to work with and sometimes it seems to have a life of its own.’ Sharon Korek.
‘Opening the kiln after a firing, there is always a moment of holding one’s breath, to see what the cut and assembled pieces of glass have become in the intense heat of the kiln.’
