Specialising in the areas of coldworking, fusing and flameworking, Fuchs has undertaken additional advanced training for glassblowing at the Technical College of Glass for Design and Craft (Kramsach, Tyrol, Austria) Abate Zanetti (Scuola del Vetro, Murano, Italy) and at Cam Ocagi (The Glass Furnace Istanbul, Turkey). Her artistic approach and style has also been developed through attending numerous masterclasses with artists predominantly from Italy and the USA. Since 2014 and after much time abroad, Fuchs is now focused working exclusively as an independent glass artist in her own studio.
Fuchs’ art works share a common ‘spirit’ and ‘organic’ aesthetic. The themes which run through her pieces are inspired by the beauty and power of nature; of rising, elevating and growth, which she also interprets from a spiritual influence. She feels creativity and vision are born by travelling, connecting with people from around the world and through cultural exchange.
In the artist’s own words;
"Offering me every possible way to express myself, glass became my ‘partner in crime’ to transform my ideas in reality. To mix my own colours is very important for me. Colours are feelings, colours show the mood of a work at first glance. Colours are life”
The artist can also create pieces to commission, please contact the gallery for further information.
