Fused Glass Wall Art ‘Honesty’ by Wendy Newhofer
Bring the soothing colours of nature into your home when you choose this fused glass wall art.
This lovingly handmade fused glass wall art will accentuate your décor. Wendy creates her expressive artworks using sheets of float glass cut to size. The colour is created by including layers of the metal leaf, foil and wire. Her technique is a little bit like alchemy in reverse. The work goes into the kiln looking shiny and metallic and comes out with a range of soft painterly colours.
A gorgeous piece of glass wall art that will attract admiring glances for years to come.
Fused Glass Wall Art Artist
Wendy Newhofer was a primary school teacher for many years. She was fortunate enough to work as a teacher part time which, enabled her to indulge her passion for drawing and printmaking. A move to Oxford, in 2003, provided her with the opportunity to enrol on an Art Foundation course. It was there she first encountered kiln-formed glass and was immediately captivated by the process.
The next few years were spent studying for a part-time Fine Arts degree before deciding to concentrate on glass art. A 3D glass course in London over three years gave her the skills and experience to set up a studio at her home in Oxford.
Wendy makes expressive glass pieces which have a ‘painterly’ quality to them. She is able to ‘draw’ within the glass and create a palette of subtle colours. She achieves this by including precious metal leaf and wire in her designs. The glass is then fired in the kiln to create her stunning artworks. Her love of pattern informs her work. In addition, natural forms have been a strong influence in her work.
Wendy is a member of the Contemporary Glass Society and Just Glass and regularly shows work in their exhibitions. She has also taken part in the Oxfordshire Artweek’s open studios for thirteen years and has exhibited nationally.
