Chris Davenport

Chris originally studied Photography in the USA and then at the Arts Institute at Bournemouth. This in turn led on to her current passion for working with kiln fused glass.

Her work:

Living on the Jurassic coast and bordered by Wareham Forest, Poole Harbour and Arne, there is never any shortage of inspiration. Indeed, colour combinations and textures can often be suggested in the most unlikely places. Most of her work is made using Bullseye glass, which is fired in the kiln to a temperature of 796°C. She also uses Murano glass inset with millefiori to give a different effect.
