Kate Osman

Kate is a glass artist and is passionate about working with glass - on reflection, she's fairly sure that the slight element of danger has something to do with this!

She works mostly with reclaimed glass, broken greenhouse glass, glass from picture frames and indeed pretty much any odd bits of glass she can recycle! Her favourite finds are the fabulous gems of colour that you spot amongst the sand and pebbles at the seaside - the irresistible gleam and sparkle of Sea Glass! The wire within her work is mostly from her local car stereo repair shop, old wire looms from cars and scrap cast-offs from electricians. All of it needs to be stripped from the rubber casing before she can use it.

Each piece she creates is unique, an exploration of colour and form, the molten glass leading the way, the colours working each time in an unusual, unique and fabulous way.

Her main inspiration comes from the  great outdoors and the fantastic Jurassic Coast where most of her free time is spent digging for treasure, kayaking, collecting shells, driftwood and of course the ever illusive Sea Glass! The range of colours in this rawest of environments, ever changing as the sky, sea and sand do their thing make her heart sing!
