Glass Round Bowls ‘Night Sky’ By Charles Sharpe

Night Sky is another of Charles Sharpe’s glass round bowls that captures the imagination.  The dark blue iridescent glass conjures up thoughts of a night sky.  While the other side presents sky blue transparent glass emitting a moody feel to the bowl.  The strong opalescent orange stripes, like the final rays of sunset, filtering through the emerging night sky.

Glass Round Bowls Artist

Charles Sharpe has always admired glass, its vibrancy and tone.   Having been a collector of glass himself it was only natural that he would become a glass artist.  With the onset of rheumatoid arthritis, Charles could no longer work as a woodturner and it was then that he began to follow his love of glass.

With a career as a carpenter and joiner, Charles has been able to use his acquired skills of precision cutting to make uniquely patterned pieces of glass.  Using unusual construction methods he is able to create a piece that is simultaneously very controlled and excitingly innovative.

Inspired by highly coloured textiles of Kaffe Fassett, Zaha Hadid’s contemporary architecture and the landscape photographs of Charle Waite.  Charles works with a magnitude of glass fragments to create a fused glass piece that is highly individual, still retaining the attraction and fascination of all that is glass.

Fine-tuning his skills with the tuition from an accomplished glass artist, Charles is establishing his own style of work.  He gains great pleasure from planning and cutting segmented glass pieces.  Embracing the challenge of colour proportions and placement to achieve the planned vision.  Recently Charles has started to texture his work with bead and plaster to create matt effects which accents his designs.

Based in Norfolk, Charles’s work has gone to collections in France and Germany.  His is a regular exhibitor in East Anglia.
