Three cameo engraved glass vases

Three cameo engraves glass vases by Amanda Simmons. Simmons has worked in glass for a number of years, graduating from Central St Martin’s School of Art and Design in London with distinction having studied a postgraduate certificate in Glass and Architecture. Based in Dumfries and Galloway, Simmons makes kiln formed glass objects. She uses opaque glass powders to construct her work, because of its varying translucency as the forms elongate in the kiln. She finishes the kiln fired pieces using various processes, including sandblasting, hand lapping and diamond point and wheel engraving.
