Working primarily with kiln formed glass, Ilminster based Liz Sparkes is inspired by the natural world, in the main her spiritual home, The Somerset Levels.
This watery ancient mystical landscape with it’s big skies and ever changing light nourishes her soul. She tries to capture some of the essence of this in her work using the ephemeral beauty of glass.
Glass is both transparent and opaque, it is of the earth, but transmuted by fire. It is fragile yet incredibly resilient at the same time. It is the perfect medium to speak of this place beautiful planet we call home.“
Liz’s work can be found in private collections around the world.
