Pam has been working with stained glass for over 15 years. She started by attending a ‘workshop’ at a local college in Sheffield and caught ‘the bug’. Since then Pam has worked in both the copper foiling and leaded techniques. She has successfully designed and made windows for herself and commissions. Pam has also made smaller pieces such as sun catches and 3D work. In 2012 she studied the art of fused glass at Darton College. This has opened up a world of different creative opportunities for her, including screen printing on glass.
In the last couple of years she has displayed her work at Countryfile Live at Blenheim palace, as well as The British Craft Trade Fair at Harrogate Showground. She has also undertaken charity work with Barnsley Hospice, as well as raising money for the Royal British Legion through the sale of her glass poppy brooches. Recently Pam has started working with the National Trust, which has involved designing and selling a stained glass star which is unique to the Nostell Priory property.
Pam says ‘I love working with glass. The colours and effects created can be amazing. I have always had an interest in the stories told in old church windows. The sun shining through them creates a sense of spirituality’. She offers bespoke workshops, make at home glass kits and for the more corporate minding glass items with branding, e.g. coasters for office or hospitality settings.
Pam studied art at school and was to go on to Degree level. Sadly she was unable to follow her dream but has found that her ‘creative style’ has appeared in other ways, namely through her eye for design and work with glass.
