Biography

Effie Burns Glass was established in1999. Based in the North East the studio has been concerned with glass and its ability to transform space. As an artist I work across a broad range of projects both sculptural and in the public realm. My role varies enormously depending on the piece of work. In some cases I am a maker, curator, consultant or collaborator. Meeting new people and travelling to different places have become elements that inform my work. It enables it to constantly develop and change.
