Artist’s Work Example Title:

Claude André

Fused Glass

Originally from France, Claude has made the Staffordshire Moorlands his home and works from his Leek based studio where he designs and creates wall hangings and functional objects, including a range of mix and match coasters.

Claude uses coloured glass along with frit (crushed glass) and enamel as his palette; these are carefully assembled and fused in a kiln in stages, to build up the images.

Some pieces will require several firings to achieve the depth required. Shaped items for example bowls and standing curves are fired again on a mould to create the shape.
