Glass Art Panel Artist
Amanda Charles began her stellar glass journey by training in ceramics and glass at the University of Hertfordshire. She became fascinated by the versatility of glass and the amazing array of ways it was possible to work with glass to create beautiful art.
Amanda Charles’s favourite modus operandi is working with kiln-formed glass. This is a ‘warm glass’ technique, where layers of glass are fused together in the kiln. Precise heat control enables her to stack opalescent, transparent and dichroic glass. This creates vibrancy, geometry and very tactile 3D texture. It almost invites the viewer to reach out and touch the art.
Inspired both by contemporary art movements and the great art movements such as Bauhaus, Amanda Charles Glass abstract art creations focus on geometric and powerful colour contrasts. The elaborate detail of her pieces creates both linear and non-linear compositions – a harmonic dissonance if you will.
Layers of glass complement or contrast with each other to create a wonderful divergence between light absorption and reflection in intricate detail and pattern. A style that pays homage to the simplicity of Bauhaus Modernism and the complexity of non-representational Abstract Expressionism (art not based on reality, but more an expression of the artists’ psyche).
Her artistic style and technique are constantly evolving as she continues to experiment with the marvellous medium of glass.
