Suzanne creates fused glass art and jewellery in her home studio in Yarraville, Melbourne’s inner west. She got hooked on glass 9 years ago when her friend gave her lampwork lessons. Suzanne loves the calm that comes from working with glass and the patience required to make it. There can be unexpected results. You never quite know how the glass will melt or how the colours will react after spending hours in the kiln and there is always excitement opening the kiln in the morning. As well as working in art glass, Suzanne loves to recycle. She is inspired to make glass that has had a previous life and a story to tell. She finds old, broken windows, picture frames, lamp shades and bottles and re-forms them into glass art, functional pieces and jewellery. You can find Suzanne and her work at markets around Victoria and regularly at the Rose St market in Fitzroy.
