Queen of the Night
Sculptor: Lynn Baker
Location: Lincolnshire
Brief Biography: I am a designer and maker of hand blown and kiln formed studio glass, architectural panels and garden sculpture.
About My Work:

My work is based around the themes of ‘movement and change’ and much of my inspiration comes from the Lincolnshire Wolds, an area of outstanding natural beauty where I both live and work. I develop my designs by taking a panorama or series of photographs and progress using a wide variety of drawing and model making.

I am fascinated by glass. When it is heated it turns from a solid to a liquid and in its molten state I can pull, push, bend, blow and twist it, meaning I have to think quickly. The possibilities are endless and the results always exciting. When glass blowing I specialise in working with the graal technique using 24% lead crystal. ‘Embryo’s or ‘blanks’ are made, cooled and then heavily sand carved and engraved. These are then heated, picked up on a blowing iron, coated and blown to the required shape and size, a complicated process.

Kiln work has its own set of challenges and it has a different sort of beauty. I enjoy breaking down the glass and rebuilding it adding oxides and trapping air between the layers, in effect trapping a moment in time. Each piece is totally unique.
