My name is Claude André and I'm based in Leek Staffordshire though originally from eastern France where I developed my love of glass being surrounded by the likes of Gallé and Daum.
I work mainly in fused glass using Bullseye glass, its expensive but in my opinion provides the most vibrant range of colours.
Each piece goes through several stages and it takes several firings to create the finished piece
Temperature range usually to about 1450º F with long slow annealing at each stage, the average large piece takes up to 3 days in the kiln and thats after cutting out all the pieces of glass!
I can crete images from your precious landscape photo memories, contact me to discuss. Come and have a chat at any of the fairs, see link above
