Artigiano Glass by Diane Rowlinson, Cark-in-Cartmel, Cumbria
Artigiano means 'craftswoman' in Italian.
I live in the Lake District fusing glass inspired by the landscape but with an Art Deco twist.
Rivers are my recent fascination using iridescent colours, aspiring to replicate their fluidity of movement and the reflection of light on water.
My variety of work includes a trophy for the Irish Ballooning Club, glassware for the award winning Old Stamp House Restaurant, Ambleside and other works being both decorative and functional.
Commissions form a large part of my work and include a fire screen, bespoke window hanging designs and a large church window of St Charles Borromeo for the church of that name in Grange-over-Sands.
Visit the GALLERY to see examples of my work.
Work currently on show at:
The Pyramid Gallery, York, The Picture House Gallery, Padiham, Lancashire, & Pilling Pottery, Lancashire, Cartmel Ground Gallery, Cartmel, and The Old Stamp House Restaurant, Ambleside.
I am running a workshop at Brantwood,
Glass Fusing for Beginners
in November 2018. Date to be confirmed.
Please contact Brantwood for further information and to enrol.
I also run classes in my own studio. Please enquire for details.
