Artist Karen Griffiths specialises in fused glass art, creating wall panels, free-standing curves and waves, as well as household items such as coasters and plates Working from her studio in North Shields, she also makes glass jewellery.

Karen who has been working with glass for a decade, often makes bespoke commissioned pieces. A fused glass wall panel she created recently, based on a Hokusai wood print, now hangs in Edinburgh University's Wave Dynamics pool area.

She takes her inspiration from nature, especially water and trees. Some of her favourite pieces are waves, because the fluidity of the glass really lends itself to organic shapes, textures and most of all light. Karen  teaches fused glass making from her studio and in collaboration with The Glass House in North Shields.

Part of her work also includes glass painting in care homes and work with a local charity called Northern Butterflies.
