Meet the Maker
Sue has recently fulfilled a childhood dream. She was a creative child, always drawing, painting and making things. At a very early age she remembers watching a TV programme on making stained glass windows and thinking “what fun!”. After turning down a place at art college at 16 to pursue a career in scientific research and then spending the last few years teaching science, she is now having that “fun”.
Sue designs unique items out of stained glass and constructs them with lead or copper foil. She is also incorporating her love of wood carving. Sue’s work is moving towards sculptural and 3D artwork – her work and aspirations are evolving.
Sue comments: “It’s an absorbing hobby and it’s great when I can come up with new ideas. I love playing with pieces of coloured glass and getting tooled up in all my health & safety gear – I look like something out of Star Wars”.
Sue also paints, draws and plays the guitar. She gets her inspiration from science, nature, music and artists working in other media. She is grateful for the support and encouragement she gets from her partner, friends and mentors. She operates under the name “Aart Norfolk” and sells her glass work at art and craft fairs and is a frequent stall holder at the Fakenham Makers Market.
