Emma Woffenden

Chaser, Emma Woffenden, 2016.

Emma Woffenden's experimental, often collaborative, practice utilises many glass techniques, including blowing and casting. The resulting glass elements are constructed and combined with other materials and found objects to create sculptures and installations based around the human figure. Uncanny and at times unsettling, her works reflect observed human behaviour, with traits of humour, aggression and the absurd. A significant figure within the glass community, Woffenden until recently held the post of Artistic Director for North Lands Creative Glass in Scotland.
