Glass Wall Decor ‘Yellow Clover’ by Wendy Newhofer
‘Yellow Clover’ by Wendy Newhofer is an incredibly charming piece of glass wall decor.
Using wire and precious metal within her work, Wendy creates glass artworks that are like paintings. The pale grey painted frame complements the subtle grey and yellow coloured red glass used within the piece.
This beguiling glass wall décor measures 28 x 28 cm and would suit any contemporary or traditionally styled home.
The glass wall decor also comes with a ‘D-ring’ on the back ready to hang.
Glass Wall Decor 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.
