Lynne Glazzard

Lynne is a jewellery designer and maker with a special interest in colour working from her studio in North Yorkshire. Most of Lynne’s work is influenced by her surroundings, incorporating underlying patterns and textures of the landscape and forms inspired by plant growth and by architecture. In her enamel panels the images are built up using thin layers of finely ground vitreous enamel, a type of powdered glass. Each layer of colour is fired at temperatures over 800 degrees centigrade, creating colourful glassy surfaces, often showing underlying marks and reactions with the previous layers of colour. The relationships of the colours and their reactions with each other is endlessly fascinating and one of things that keeps her experimenting within her work.
