Hello! Welcome to my website, thanks for stopping by.

My name is Vikki and I design & make stained glass! I originally started the craft by attending a two day taster session run at the wonderful Ardington School of Crafts, by the end of the first day I was hooked and so there was no option but to carry on. I have developed my skills under the tutorage of Sarah Glover and was fortunate to learn glass painting from Nicola Kantorowicz.

After exhibiting some panels at Oxfordshire Artweeks for the first time in May 2016 (exhibiting as part of Village Arts in Appleton) I returned to do a further exhibition with the Clumps Orchard Artists in Little Wittenham in 2017 moving along to the amazing Earth Trust in Little Wittenham 2018. Taking part in artweeks has provided me with a great opportunity to meet other artists and display my work in some beautiful settings.

My Etsy shop is here but if you are interested in commissioning a panel or small suncatcher for yourself or as a gift or stocking my cards please do contact me me directly. (You can see previous examples of my work on the glass portfolio page). I make to order so lead times will vary depending on the piece.

As you will see I’m a big lover of the natural world and the animals that inhabit it (most of the inspiration for the things I make comes from the wildlife and landscapes which I see around me and I love representing what may be hidden in the everyday). You can find out more about my day to day inspiration (quite a lot of moths among other things) over on the blog.

Proud to be a  member of the BSMGP
