Glass Blown Art Artist
Roberta Mason is the hugely talented artist behind Blue Chromis Glass. Currently studying for an MA in Ceramics and Glass at the Royal College of Art London, Roberta is a burgeoning talent within her field. Her work is strongly influenced by water, her kilnforming and hot glass techniques creating masterpieces that explore perspectives, as well as our relationship with the environment.
Roberta’s first exhibition was in 2010, and her latest works are on display at the Glass Pyramid Gallery in York. By attending Master Classes in a glass, Roberta is constantly expanding her knowledge, as well as strengthening and perfecting her techniques for creating the best-blown glass vessel. An artist with unstoppable energy, Roberta was highly commended in 2015 by the Worshipful Company of Glass Sellers. In 2016, she won a scholarship to attend her Master Classes with Dr Gerry King.
Roberta’s relationship with glass and water could best be described as a passionate love affair. By understanding the properties of glass, its opacity, and transparency, Roberta creates works of art that contain depth and inner narratives. Taking her inspiration from Aristotle and his quote “The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance,” Roberta is an artist, who is constantly evolving, her latest interest is in 3D Design.
