I am a glass and enamel artist. Having spent my childhood by the sea, memories of that time are reflected in my work, which tends to merge with other passions such as teaching. I use my skills as a primary and early years specialist to connect with most ages during glass/enamel workshops, via hands-on demonstrations.
I have worked with schools and community groups to create collaborative projects, sharing the magic of glass and enamel with new artists. I also offer demonstrations for different groups such as the WI, art societies and university groups. In addition, I've run workshops and away days for businesses and schools.
My drive to push boundaries by exploring the limits of the material is one of the things that I love most about working with glass. Sharing this love as an instructor, and encouraging the next generation to craft, through the creation of jewellery, blown glass pieces and flamework crafted beads is my mission for Melissa’s Melting Pot.
