Vicky’s work combines hot glass and cold working. Her forms are hand blown and worked into by the techniques of cutting, carving and engraving to create vessels and sculptural objects which explore the relationships between form, pattern and colour. Vicky started working with glass while studying 3D Design at Manchester Metropolitan University and went on to complete a Masters in Glass at the University of Sunderland in 2011. Since then she has been living and working in Edinburgh. She has undertaken residencies in Sunderland, Caithness, the Czech Republic and at Edinburgh College of Art, where she is currently tutor of hot glass.
Recent work has exploited the properties of glass to represent her own experiences, with layers of colour, pattern, texture and transparency. Mark-making on the glass is gestural and idiosyncratic, using cold-working tools in an expressive way, and the glass itself has also been used to mark other materials through heat and texture.
