studying three dimensional design at Berkshire College of Art & Design,
Stella was awarded a Bursary from The Royal Society of Arts to study design
in Europe. She was also awarded the best student entry for the Dunlopillo
Design Award from an international field.
After a career in commercial design and further
studies in Landscape Design, Stella has concentrated on developing her practical
skills in the process of kiln-formed glass by recreating scenes using glass
and other components that become panels, dishes and table centre pieces.
With studios both in Bath and
Devon, nature and water is paramount in all her
designs. 'I am enormously privileged to live in a World Heritage City for
some months of the year and then close to the sea in rural Devon. I have
challenged myself to recreate the feel of both these places in my glass
designs from the bustling sailing towns of Salcombe and Dartmouth in the
summer months to the elegant Georgian architecture and surrounding hills
Stella is a member of The Contemporary Glass
Society and the Somerset Guild of Craftsmen..
