Sam Rogers

I am a self taught fused glass artist, with a passion for all things arty and glass, living in Hertfordshire.

sam portrait bio b&wOriginally trained at art college as a graphic designer back in the late 80s I work part time in a school when not being creative in my home shedio!   I started my glass journey with a microwave kiln a few years ago and very quickly decided to upgrade to a larger kiln and learn by trial and error, as well as books and the internet.  I try to incorporate a quirky sense of humour into my work, with this coming through most in my glass birds and animals, all with their own distinctive personalities (complete biographies with their likes, dislikes and aspirations for the future appear on my facebook page).  Inspiration comes from the countryside and coast, many many photos are taken on holidays, and sketches made which later come through in my art.

Most recently I have discovered lampworking (bead making in a scary flame) and am experimenting with ways to incorporate it with the fused work so look out for some new and more sculptural unique pieces coming soon!
