Sue Woolhouse

The Work is mainly one-off bespoke pieces for clients and the final work is developed through research and engaging with the client on a journey. Discussions with the client are an important collaborative part of this process. Each commission is site specific and has a relationship to the space and the people that use it. Texture, light and glass colours are used to transform new or existing spaces. Projects have ranged from both the public and private sectors, including hospitals, theatres, galleries and museums. The work also varies in scale from awards, gifts and small private commissions to large-scale pieces of public art for interior or exterior spaces. Another area of the business is working as an artist within both primary and secondary schools, running glass workshops and residencies. Work is either created for chosen areas around the school environment or is made as part of their curriculum. I began my career in the North East as a freelance lecturer at Sunderland University. Since 1989 my commission led practice has been based at 36 Lime Street, a John Dobson grade II listed building, originally a flax factory. My move to a much larger studio nine years ago overlooking the river has allowed my business to expand. It is also the ideal environment to take part in the various practical glass workshops that I run.
