Hazel Metherell Glass

Small waves with pebblesI am  a glass artist living in the heart of Northumberland, England’s most northern county.

The pieces I produce rely on a combination of techniques.  The glass is prepared by fusing material of different colours into a single sheet which is then relaxed into a mould to produce a textured finish.

My work is inspired by the Northumberland coast and countryside and the plants which thrive there.  Many pieces are site-specific, involving the incorporation of rock material from a particular location giving the pieces a particular regional resonance.

Many of my pieces are also mounted in local stone adding further a reference to their inspiration.
