Sarah Broadhead has been designing and making enamelled glass in Hampshire for many years. Her bowls, clocks, coasters and jewellery are both functional and decorative. She uses her textile training to pattern and colour the glass in a painterly way. Her inspiration comes from the play of light on water and the forms of animals and plants in nature. Her pieces are held in many private and public collections worldwide, including Newnham College, Cambridge.
The clocks can form a striking focal point in any room or blend with existing décor. They are coloured with glass enamel, with two layers of glass fused together in a kiln. The hours are marked using Sarah’s Eternal Bubble Design and as they are handmade the colours and shapes of the bubbles may vary slightly. Each clock is individually signed and numbered by the maker. They are 26cm in diameter. They are easy to hang on the wall and are powered by an AA battery.
The coasters are 10cm across with coloured enamel fused onto the glass. They are heat-proof even on your best French polished furniture, though they come with little feet for extra reassurance.
