Hi! My name is Georgie Bristow and I’d like to offer you the chance to own some of the glassy creations I create here in Bristol.
Each bead is created in the flame with the help of a mandrel, bead release, glass and last but not least, and probably the most important, patience!!
All my beads are made one by one and then placed in the kiln where they will sit and destress themselves slowly! This basically means that when they arrive at your door they are strong and able to withstand life with their new owner.
However…this does not mean that they shouldn’t be treated with care and respect…they are after all glass and may not withstand dropping from great heights!
I’m a member of a group of Self Representing Artists in glass work.
A self representing artist is someone who creates and sells their own work. A self representing artist does not sell mass produced beads under the SRA logo. They have spent a great deal of time perfecting their work. They love their work and want their clients to love it too. The love of the art is what keeps the self representing artist creating.
