14Amanda Glanville – Maker of Tiny Glass Stuff
Amanda Glanville is a Maker of Tiny Glass Stuff. Discovering the meticulous art of flame-worked glass in the mid 1990’s she’s been on a mission ever since to reclaim the tradition of making kitsch ‘little glass animals’, reinventing them for the present day as quirky, affordable collectables.
She has become well-known at Designer Maker events across the UK for approachable, colourful and humorous mini sculptures which delight young and old. Her work in the performing arts ensures an enthusiasm for ‘audience participation’ which culminates each year in her Great Glass Advent Calendar, 24 new pieces unveiled each day in December on social media.
