A glass maker who works with other artists to fabricate artwork in glass.
Verified by Make Works Birmingham June 2016
Charlotte Hughes Martin specialises in one off, bespoke work in blown, hand worked, kiln formed and engraved glass. Hand working glass is a very physical process as the work needs to be be carried, turned and repeatedly heated throughout and the material itself behaves in particular ways - for example it needs to cool down slowly and is not compatible with certain metals. This results in some practical limitations in terms of what can be made, but solutions can usually be found so it is best to get in touch to talk through project ideas at an early stage.
