HELEN GRIERSON

Helen is a glass artist, based at The Old Bath House in the Northumbrian village of North Broomhill.

She started her career as a teacher, but became a full-time artist in 2005. She fell in love with glass after taking night class and experimenting in her own studio. "Working with fused glass is like alchemy, you never quite know what will happen in the kiln and the effect leaded glass can have on a room is just magical, almost spiritual."

Helen sells her work from her studio and website, and welcomes commissions. She also runs various workshops for all ages and abilities.

She says her journey as an artist is about nurturing creativity and having the courage to let that spirit take her wherever it may lead, yet never losing the ability to play.
