Biographical Profile

Lois Parker began experimenting with glass four years ago after a short course in fused glass captivated her, and now it is an unusual day that doesn’t find her in her new purpose-built studio.Previous City & Guilds qualifications in Design and Craft (Machine Embroidery and Creative Techniques in Textiles) provided a useful structure for exploration and idea development which she now applies to the medium of glass.
A successful solo exhibition at The Gardens Gallery, Cheltenham 2015 and an outlet at the Moy Mackay Gallery, Peebles, have reinforced her commitment to working as a glass artist.

Artist Statement

I find glass seductive. It alters constantly as the light changes. Viewing a piece is more like watching a performance than a static object. I am drawn to ways of using the glass which enable darker, quirkier and more mysterious pieces.I am exploring my artistic ideas and the technical restraints and possibilities of kiln-formed glass. Current pieces retain the grains of glass to give a rough matt texture.Working with glass fascinates me; I have only just begun this voyage of discovery.
