Laura Dawson is an artist who works in glass to create beautiful pieces of art. Laura’s works often come in the form of jewelry, but she also produces a wide array of objects including small dishes, incense burners, and coasters – as well as glass that functions purely as art.
Laura has perfected a technique of kiln-firing and etching that produces the unique designs on her glasswork. I really love the use of representational images – often trees, and in a more recent series, skydivers with parachutes open – in contrast with the abstract, gradient colours of glass. The jewelry pendants that Laura creates, figures silhouetted in front of bright splashes of colour, seem like fragments of a lovely sunset captured forever in a wearable capsule.
Laura displays a portfolio of her kiln-fired glass online, and also links to her Etsy store, where you can purchase one of the many pieces that she has up for sale.
