Susan Kinley

Glass wall installations and panels.

Mylor Bridge, Cornwall


Glass, wall installations, shaped panels


£650 — £15000


I combine waterjet cut glass and powdered enamels with fragments of imagery, making kilnformed panels and installations. Each work is made up of shaped sections that form a whole, exploring different viewpoints of wild and ancient places at the coastal boundaries of the UK.
I have completed commissions for many public buildings and private interiors, and recent awards include Applied Arts winner at the Marshwood Arts Awards, Cultivator Cornwall CIG, and Arts Council funding for Collect 2019.
