The late Karen Lawrence worked at London Glassblowing during the 80s and 90s and we are privileged to be hosting a retrospective of her oeuvre in our gallery between 12-27 February 2016. A selection of her artworks are available to view and purchase above.
Karen was a pioneering glass artist who earned widespread acclaim for her award winning work. She sadly passed away in 2013 aged only 53, following a long battle with cancer.
Karen developed groundbreaking techniques for making and colouring stunning kiln formed vessels, sculptures and architectural panels. By fusing and slumping careful arrangements of finely drawn strands or filaments combined with specially prepared frits, she was able to achieve exquisite and delicate forms, and effects reminiscent of ice crystals or snowflakes.
