Meet Sarah Wiberley

Sarah began glassmaking in 2001 during her studies at The Surrey Institute of Art and Design, graduating with 1st class honours 3D Design; Glass in 2004. It was during this time she began to discover her love of combining imagery with glass forms, experimenting with glass layers of different opacities.

She went on to work for a number of glass studios honing her craft before embarking on a masters degree at The Royal College of Art, graduating in 2011 from the Ceramics and Glass department. Here she had the opportunity to combine her own style with the skills she had learnt over the previous years. Sarah continues to develop her work in her own London based studio as well as working as part of the London Glassblowing studio team.

About the Work

The focus of Sarah’s glassmaking revolves around her love of colour. She adapts traditional techniques to suit her expressive style and balances the fluidity of glass forms with her imagery and pattern work. Often acknowledging the traditions of glass making within her style as well as technique; ‘Cameo Series’ began as a study of decorative Victorian vessels. Her ‘Wallpaper Series’ uses painted enamels and began as a study of floral elements used in interior design. Her most recent ranges, ‘Going Around in Circles’ and ‘Bermondsey Street Hues’, use some of the simplest of cutting techniques to achieve her most complex pattern work by working with multiple layers of glass colour.
