Fused glass artist, Claire Harris, working in her Cornwall studio


After a slight career detour (training to be a waste water engineer) I decided to follow my passions and re-train.

Art, and more specifically, fused glass art! Due to lack of facilities within Cornwall I had to learn the process in the old fashioned way, by reading books and experimenting. Being a self-taught glass artist allows me to break free of the confines of other people's techniques and ideas and create my own unique style. I love tactile art so I always create lots of texture in my glass, the extra surface area allows much more light reflection which brings each piece of glass art to life.

My glass art workshop has been visited and authenticated by the Made in Cornwall team so you can be sure you are receiving fused glass artwork handmade in Cornwall. My studio in the Historic Market House in St Austell is crammed to the rafters with glass art equipment and supplies, photography equipment and packing supplies.

Attached to my studio is my shop where I not only sell my own fused glass artwork but a range of other local artists and makers work, including candles, jewellery, ceramics, original artwork and prints, resin works, photographic prints and greetings cards.
