Caroline Weidman:
Soft Glass Sculpture  -  The Figure

 

 For Caroline it's been a  lifelong journey exploring sculptural forms, from paper to stone and now glass: from non representational large scale installations to small figurative lampwork sculpture in soft glass. 

 Journeying to both Lauscha and Murano, Caroline has sought insight and understanding into the traditions, materials, tools and techniques associated with creating soft glass sculpture. More recently she has discovered connections with traditional seaside lampworkers by entertaining visitors to the studio, with both live demonstrations and the finished work. Street entertainer or serious artist? For Caroline it's always been about light, falling on and through the forms, but with glass, for the first time, it's also about expressive movement, storytelling and colour.

 Caroline studied Fine Art at Birmingham, graduating in 1983. In 2004 she began working with glass. From her studio in Barleylands Craft Village, Billericay, Essex, Caroline undertakes stained glass commissions and repairs, a full teaching programme and has a small gallery, filled with her lampwork glass jewellery and sculpture.
