Hello! I would like to introduce myself to you, My name is Lizzie Masters and I am a glass artist living and working in the village of Berrow on the beautiful Somerset Coast. I have always been artistic and have found glass to be an amazing medium with which to work. I adore the play of light across its surface, the textures that can be created and of course the colours that dance in the sunlight through a piece of stained glass are just breathtaking. As well as producing pieces of glass for both ornamental and functional use I create beautiful fused glass pendants and earrings using the stunning array of dichroic glass available. Using a combination of techniques I am able to create an unique piece of glass just for you. I am happy to undertake commissions in both stained and fused glass. Please contact me to discuss your requirements.

Stained Glass

I use the Copper Foil technique to create my stained glass pieces. Narrow strips of adhesive backed copper foil are applied to the edges of each section of glass in the piece, this gives the solder something to adhere to. The sections are then soldered together and a patina either in black or copper is then applied to the cleaned solder and finally a coat of wax polish to prevent oxidisation. These pieces are NOT weatherproof and should only be displayed in doors.

Fused Glass

This is created by layering glass cut into the required size and shape and placing into a kiln. After heating to a high temperature the glass then becomes melted together or fused. Many different techniques can be employed to achieve various effects and the resulting pieces are very striking and often unique.
