About Us

Susan Sinclair  creates art and vessels of kiln-formed glass. The techniques to shape glass within a kiln make endless combinations of design possible. She employs the different behaviours of glass depending upon the viscosity and chemical content of specific colours and the state of the initial medium, such as powder versus sheet. Each object requires many steps: design, fusing, cold-working, shaping.  An object may go through multiples of each stage. Susan takes inspiration from two sources: the colour combinations found in the natural world, and her background in archaeology, specifically the development of pottery and porcelains.

Susan is a Craft Member of the Somerset Guild of Craftsmen and a member of the Contemporary Glass Society and Somerset Art Works.
Pete Sinclair designs and creates art, home wares and jewellery from unusual hardwoods and burrs.  The woods he uses are native hardwoods such as spalted beech, ash, walnut, yew, and oak,  as well as exotic woods such as Australian gum, and zebrano. As he turns the wood, Pete looks for what is inside and draws that out, accentuating any features the wood presents, creating organic shapes and reflecting the nature of the wood.  His turned bangles combine stainless steel, hardwood and  hardwood impregnated with coloured resins, making each one a unique and collectable work of wearable art.

Pete is a member of the Association of Woodturners of Great Britain and a member of Somerset Art Works.
