Lindsay Telling is a Bristol-based artist. Having gained a Diploma in Art and Design and Stained Glass from Bristol School of Art her passion for glass was rekindled by an artist in Fowey and her long love of Cornwall. These inspirations have brought her back to creating new work here in her Bristol studio.
Her inspirations to date have come from John Piper and Graham Sutherland and for this current exhibition – Turning Tide and the Close of Day - the pieces have been influenced by the works of Kurt Jackson, Andy Goldsworthy and her own found images of Cornwall.
The majority of pieces in this exhibition aremade of two layers of glass that have been fused together. The pieces, however, incorporate varying sizes of coloured glass called ‘frit’ with copper wire, cobalt and copper oxide. Lindsay’s intention is to take nature in its simplest form and translate it into glass in an evocative way and the sunset series is a new venture that she hopes to take further together with the hand-cut and fused leaves.
Lindsay has recently and successfully exhibited at The Beechcroft Space, Clevedon Toll House Gallery, Centre Space and The Mall Deli Gallery in Clifton Village. She has donated work for The Princes Trust and Hop Skip and Jump auctions and has recently gifted work to The Little Harbour Children’s Hospice in St Austell. She currently has work in The Fowey River Gallery, Cornwall as well as Bristol Hand Made Glass and soon to be in Pear Tree Farm, Kingston Seymour, and she also accepts commissions. Lindsay was recently Artist in Residence at Clifton College Preparatory School.
A new range of ‘Ripple’ bowls together with new works are now being created and can be seen on her website and are available here in Bristol and Fowey River Gallery.
She is available to work to commission and happy to discuss any project so please contact her via her website www.waterfrontglass.co.uk
