Eva Pollard is a glass artist inspired by nature, line and colour who makes kiln-formed glass art, homeware and jewellery under the brand Eva Glass Design; and also creates stained glass windows to commission.
Eva’s work is primarily designed to interact with natural light to bring patterns of colour to interiors. Her designs are bright and playful, with floral and coastal themes which evoke a nostalgia for sunny weather and days out. Eva is also fascinated by the relationships between line, colour and the spaces between them. Principles of balance and proportion are used in design processes which allows the finished pieces to bring a harmonious feel to interiors. She fires many pieces to a contoured finish to add texture and depth to the rich colours of the glass; whilst others combine screen-printing techniques with blended glass powders to create silhouetted effects.
Eva creates jewellery from specialised dichroic glass which has the unique property of reflecting one colour while transmitting another. The different colours can be observed by viewing from different angles. Eva finishes all her jewellery pieces with high quality silver and silver plated fittings.
Eva welcomes commissions for both stained glass windows and smaller fused glass pieces. She enjoys involving her clients in the design process to help them express their own creativity and bring their ideas to life.
Eva is a member of the Contemporary Glass Society and the Wye Valley Crafts Association. For further information please visit www.evaglassdesign.co.uk and to purchase work www.evaglassdesign.etsy.com
