Tamsin’s work is influenced by the Herefordshire countryside, the orchards, the hills, the woods and all the plants, birds and animals that grow and live.
Tamsin works on mainly British made mouth blown glass, in fabulous colours. She completely covers the glass with a special black glass paint which is totally opaque. When the paint is dry Tamsin then scrapes back into it using a variety of simple tools. She uses the paint like a scraper board which is working in the negative to achieve an effect rather like a woodcut.
All the glass is hand painted by Tamsin using her ‘scratch painting’ method on hand-made glass. After she has completed the drawing/painting the paint is fired onto the glass in a kiln and becomes fully permanent. White areas or images on the glass are where she has engraved into the glass to reveal the white surface below. Again this is fully permanent.
Tamsin was recently featured on BBC Countryfile on Easter Sunday 2016
