Kaby Bitten Glass
Every decorative or functional glass piece made by Kaby Bitten Glass is crafted by hand and decorated with original patterns inspired by the coastlines and countryside of Wales, Devon and Cornwall. Ideas are taken back to the artists studio in Herefordshire.
Functional pieces include:
Decorative pieces for hanging on your walls - either in the home or in the garden range :-
I have also made clocks and decorative mirrors by commission for wedding and special occasion gifts. I have made a fire-place screen and can make decorative splashbacks for something unique for your home.
I make series of work throughout the year which you can see and buy from the galleries who stock my pieces or at the art markets I attend - listed here. You can also contact me here to discuss what you are looking for and I can let you know what is in stock or complete a specific commission for you. The gallery shows you some of the work I've created.
Gallery owners and exhibition curators please take a look at my c.v. then contact me with details of the pieces and which series you would like to display and sell and your terms. I will call you to arrange to bring or send pieces for you to review (depending where you are located).
Every piece I make is original. I sketch out ideas from my research trips to the coast and countryside. I then create test items to work out colours and ways to create the patterns and textures. Each glass piece is hand-crafted.
Some of my work has decals included which are made from photographs I’ve taken. The decals and coloured frit are fired into the glass in the kiln in my home studio. The heated glass is slumped into moulds that I make. I can create form in the moulds using pebbles and other objects collected while walking along the sea shore or along the clifftops.
I create with themes which include:
Rock Pool: Looking through the glass-like water covering the seaweed and barnacle covered rocks and the pools they form.
Sea Shore: Wavy lines in the sand. The ebb and flow of the water.
Stormy Sea: Capturing the colours and choppiness of the waves
Pebbles: Pebbles shaped and worn by the seas tides.
Bubbles: Swirling, breaking over rocks, crashing up the cliffs.
Lichen and Seaweeds: patterns and shapes of natural repetition. Vibrant greens. Cool whites and greys.
Abstract: Using the texture, shape and material to determine the form of a piece.
Examples are found in the Gallery.
