Stevie works to commissions, and so any request would be considered using specific materials including glass, metal, oxides and fusing paints. Stevie is open to collaborating and working with a mixture of materials and sizes. Equipment is limited to a glass kiln and a glass grinder, but other than these restrictions anything might be possible. Stevie uses a process which starts with thousands of crushed or hand cut pieces of glass being placed on the base of a kiln. By layering these with details such as metal wire or glass paints she can create bespoke designs with endless possibilities before and after firing.

Stevie graduated with a BA in Contemporary Decorative Craft from the University of Lincoln in 2007 and started her arts practise soon after. It was during the 3 year course where she first worked with glass, and subsequently chose it as her specialist material. Now with over 11 years experience of running workshops in a variety of mediums, her recent practice concentrates on collaborative working, curating exhibits & developing public engagement activities. Her passion for colour and texture suits this way of working, appealing to collaborating artists and the general public. Stevie has a passion for what she creates, experimenting with new and inquisitive designs all the time. Her products represent this ever-growing interest in the material of glass and how it can be worked with in a multitude of ways.
