Artist of the Month – Cornish Fused Glass by Kirstyn Smith

by Bull Pen Gallery at Cotehele | Saltash
Date of event: 01/04/24 - 30/04/24

Art, design and creating, in all its many forms, has always been a huge part of Kirstyn’s life.

Having lived in Cornwall her whole life, the rugged coastlines and beautiful countryside have been hugely inspirational and has always played a massive part in her original designs.

Before embarking on her love of glass fusion, Kirstyn embraced her love of culture and diversity, whilst she studied interior design in her early years gaining her honours degree in the subject.

It was during this period Kirstyn fell in love with the art and design of the 60’s/70’s.  This period of design is massively influential when it comes to her floral artwork and much sort after statement kitchen splash backs and unique artwork.

As an avid lover of all things whimsical and magical Kirstyn’s work is created from happy memories.  Those autumnal walks in the wood, summer days at the beach, gardening and many a happy time with her 3 children, embracing the enjoyment of family life via nature and arts and crafts.
