Fused glass dish (GAR001)
Gregg produces a range of fabulous kiln-formed and slumped glass in his 'Creative Fusion' studio on the Devon/Cornwall border.
Born in Truro, Gregg has always lived in Cornwall and draws on the rugged coast, moors and landscape along with the mining history of the area to fuel his artistic inspiration.
Originally working with coloured glass, he went on to use mineral foils in the glass. This work was greatly influenced by the colours and effects he found in the deposits of metal ores in the old mine workings he had explored as a child, he stayed working in mineral foils until he felt he had developed this medium as far as it could go.
Feeling the need to stretch himself and to take his work to a higher level, to create more flowing and organic lines in the work and develop new textures, more creative techniques and exciting colours. He now works mostly with coloured glass powder, producing vibrant and organic works of art.
Through experimentation, Gregg has been able to develop techniques for working with glass powders that are unique to his work, which creates an unusual textured look in the glass, a process that requires a very long time in the kiln. The end results of this process allows the work to take on its organic forms.
each piece is produced individually by hand ensuring no two are ever exactly alike.
