Turner Rowe Glass Art for one of a kind glass and ceramic creations, bowls and sculptures ard jewellery...
My name is Jo Turner and I am a lampwork glass artist and ceramicist. I live by the sea and my studio is based in Birchington, Kent at Quex Park Craft Village.
I use the ancient art of lampworking (some call it flame-work) to produce many different types of bead, which can incorporate a variety of materials, including fine silver wire and silver leaf, copper and brass. Glass rods are melted using a specially designed dual-fuel blowtorch and turned into gorgeous glass creations! Each lampwork glass bead used in my designs is made by myself.
My fused glass work looks to exploring colour texture and producing the illusion of movement in glass
All of my pieces are annealed in a digitally controlled kiln to eliminate stress that is introduced into the glass during the making process, and to ensure the glass is strong and durable.
My ceramic creations are very organic in nature and mostly inspired by the sea but you will find the off 'dark' piece within my collections. You can find many of my creations in my Etsy shop. You can also buy directly from me by visiting my studio or via Facebook.
