Silversides Glass Art sounds really grand doesn't it?... all big and corporate. But really it's just me, Gill Silversides, and I spend all day every day with glass because I love it!
My work is mainly kiln fired glass, using modern fuel efficient electric kilns to heat art glass up to temperatures of over 800 degrees and setting it into art pieces and jewellery. Some of my creations can be used as fruitbowls, olive bowls and dishes. I also have an exclusive selection of decorative pieces which are a little less practical, take a tour of the gallery page for further details.
It’s my ambition to fill the world with beautiful glass, which in turn means keeping production costs down, giving you the opportunity to own a piece of unique hand crafted art, for around the same price as an imported and mass produced decoration from a store.
Although my studio in Bath City Centre isn't a retail premises I love it when visitors pop in. You are welcome to come and choose or commission a piece. Please visit the commissions page for further details of projects I've undertaken.
I share my skills with regular classes and workshops which gives you the opportunity to make your very own piece of glass art and meet new friends. Jewellery is a popular choice along with decorative bowls and coasters. Due to popularity gift vouchers are now available so you can treat a friend or family member to a two or four hour introduction class. Full details can be found on the classes and workshops page.
