Hi, I am Norma Sales, Glass Artist- Designer, Maker.
My passion for glass started many years ago with a day course making a stained glass panel in the lovely country village of Rothbury in Northumberland. Sometime later I took a week long LIFT course at the University of Sunderland in the Glass and Ceramics Department, here I learned how to blow glass, I was hooked. 3 years of study later, a BA (hons) Glass, Architectural Glass and Ceramics and I am here. My own practice, exhibiting all over the UK and Scotland. Even a finalist in the prestigious Worshipful Company of Glass Sellers Prize 2007 in London.
I still love designing and creating new glass products and I am very lucky to have my workshop in my home town just on the outskirts of Whitley Bay, from my back door I have the lush countryside with its flora and fauna, and a short walk from the front door the ever-changing sea, so every day I can see something different and this gives me the inspiration to create my work.
