This original piece of kiln sculptured glass art is an interesting piece. Made entirely from glass the mastery of that is Sharon Korek ensures that the piece is created in detail. Made from hand-pulled murrini cane from her vitrigraph kiln. Karen uses her skill and careful placement of glass, to create a microscopic view of the cross-section of an Oak tree.
A really stunning piece, which is perfectly presented by a handmade clear glass arc, in which the oak stem sits.

Kiln Sculptured Glass Art Artist
Sharon Korek took early retirement from lecturing in Law in 2014. She learned 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.’
