Artist’s Work Example Title:

Helen André

Flameworked Glass

Originally from Dublin, Helen has made the Staffordshire Moorlands her home and works from her Leek based studio where she designs and creates mainly floral and nature inspired pieces of wearable glass art.

Helen creates beads and cabochons by melting rods of glass in a flame carefully shaping with hand tools.

No two pieces will be identical as each is created individually in the flame. Pieces are then placed in a digitally controlled kiln overnight to ensure strength and durability. After careful inspection the pieces are cleaned and made up into jewellery with sterling silver.
