Barbara Roll Glass


Barbara is a lifetime Maker taking inspiration from waste, inherited items and found objects. She constructs blown glass vessels using the Incalmo method: fusing (joining) two or more blown glass elements. By creating non-functional vessels and usable vibrant colour bowls, and placing these works on stylised plinths made from discarded furniture, she allows us to celebrate the imperfections and quirkiness of potential waste. Her work appeals to collectors who enjoy an emotional connection with their possessions. Recent work: 'In The Balance' – an assemblage of glass and found objects. A rejection of trends..
