Collection: Sally Moore

Initially trained as a furniture and Jewellery designer at Edinburgh College of Art, when Sally Moore discovered glass she was in seventh heaven.

Sally's first pieces of glass were very abstract, but she has since moved on to her other great passion in nature: birds and animals. She loves watching nature, particularly birds, so has been influenced and spurred on to make creatures.

To make one of her fused glass artwork, Sally uses Bullseye glass. The clear and coloured glass which comes in a variety of formats, including sheet glass, frit (small pieces of glass), stringers, rods and powdered glass. Using only Bullseye glass allows her to mix and match the variety of glass types without worrying about compatibility, as not all types of glass will melt well together in the kiln. She often use all forms of glass in one piece of art to create the patterns and textures that she is trying to capture.

The glass is pieced together then heated in a specialist kiln up to around 800°C. Some of the works are then slumped over a mould to create more three dimensional pieces. Many of the animals have metal inclusions to allow them to be free standing. These metal additions are hand worked, using her metalwork skills.

All of Sally's products are individually made so no two are quite the same. She expertly crafts each piece to make a wonderful addition to any home.
