Ann is a Contemporary Fused Glass Artist and a Multimedia Artist. She creates individually crafted pictures in both contemporary and Art Deco styles as well as jewellery (including pendants, earrings, rings, brooches and cufflinks), ornaments, Christmas decorations and other glass art including large Wall Art. Ann also creates multimedia paintings.
Her glass work is fused in a kiln and many items are decorated with dichroic glass, which gives the items depth of colour and texture. Each piece is unique and can be made to client’s own specification and design.
Ania Originals originated approximately 30 years ago, initially making and selling fabric applique items of clothing and bedding. The idea of applique then moved on to glass items finally specialising in jewellery, pictures, free standing glass art, wall art, coasters, draped vases and light catchers made from fused glass.
Ann is a member of THE GUILD OF ESSEX CRAFTSMEN and can be found at some of their craft fairs (see website for details).
Ann also runs one day Glass Fusing workshops held at Acorn Cottage Billericay, Essex, where students will learn to cut glass and make up to 3 items of glass art and up to 3 items of jewellery (or another piece of glass art). Classes are friendly and relaxed atmosphere and there are follow on workshops for students wishing to increase their knowledge and experience. Refreshments and a delicious lunch are included in the price.
