Louise Hawkins

Louise Hawkins has been involved in glassmaking for over 20 years. Following an Art Foundation at Winchester School of Art, she graduated with a BAHons Degree in Design from Goldsmiths College London before studying at the International Glass Centre. She gained much of her understanding of the medium of glass early in her career whilst working alongside some of the British Glassmaking industry's traditional and contemporary artisans. In 1999 she and her partner Colin Hawkins wereawarded the Broadfield House Glass Scholarship before establishing their own Glass blowing Studio.
Ten years into their collaborative career Louise returned to college to explore pattern and textile at Gloscat. Influenced by this time and her passion for nature, her work began to evolve as she explored her own visual language, developing techniques to apply it to glass.
Through observation and precision carving by hand, my focus is to achieve, in glass, the effortless and random characteristics of nature.
I study and draw my subjects, sand carving my interpretation by hand into the surface of the glass, creating permanent marks from and of the transient and shifting cycles of nature. Defining movement and flow of form through surface texture, Juxtaposing light and shadow, transparent and opaque.
