Anne Scott is a contemporary kiln-formed glass and mixed-media artist. Starting at home with just a 15cm x 15cm kiln she upgraded to a 30cm x 30cm kiln in lockdown 2020 to complete assignments for her BA(Hons) in Glass and Ceramics for which she studied at the University of Sunderland, based at the National Glass Centre. Wanting to make bigger works she soon discovered fusing copper wire within a piece gave me a system of constructing much larger 3Dimensional projects. In addition, playing around with firing schedules could add or remove texture within these pieces. And working with the chemical reactions that can be caused within some glass can add more drama to a finished artwork.
Her finished pieces can be both abstract, textured or take natures forms. These can be opaque or translucent. Delicate or strong, feather-light, or substantial. Smooth or textured. Glass is an illusionist in a kiln.
