Carole Rutherford

My name is Carole, with my husband Bob we have setup a small workshop at our home in Wensleydale, in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales

I produce various styles of fused glass, all of which are hand made by fusing layers of glass in my kiln, this can involve multiple firings to achieve the required end result  Some of the items are then fired again to make bowls, candle holders, etc.  As the items are all hand made no two will be exactly the same, which is part of the beauty.  I love making special pieces for people as commissions as they are so much more personal, though that does come with some pressure.

My husband hand makes the bases, which are in the main made from recycled Oak with a simple bees wax finish to allow the wood to shine through.
