Barbara Roll

A lifetime Maker working with waste, inherited items and found objects.

Barbara Roll relishes the freedom of working with blown glass to create an aesthetic that moves her. She constructs vessels using the Incalmo method: fusing two or more blown glass elements.

Collage is secondary to her 3D making. It is an ideas/sketching/planning/inspirational thing. An automaton response to an idea that is trying to emerge, almost done blindfolded. When it emerges, so does an understanding of its roots.

Recent work: 'In The Balance' – an assemblage of glass and found objects. A rejection of trends. Vessels from this collection are now available for sale.

She studied a BA in Ceramics and Glass at Plymouth College of Art, June 2018.

Commission Work from Barbara Roll

Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.

Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
