RD Glass is run by award winning designer/maker Roxanne Denny, from her studio near Cockermouth. She has always been passionate about art and design and so chose to pursue a degree in Applied Art. Almost as soon as she began working with glass she knew that it was the material for her, as it allowed her to combine her love of colour and light and so she spent her years at university specialising in fused and cast glass. After gaining her BA(hons) in 2008 she set up RD Glass, producing unique and limited edition fused and cast glass items including bowls, wall art, coasters, sculptures and jewellery.
She began teaching six years ago and other than at her own studio has also taught at Florence Mine Arts Centre, Egremont and the Beacon Museum, Whitehaven, to name a few. Her students have now made over 300 fused glass pieces with her, with many enjoying it so much they come back a second (or third!) time.
