Hello and welcome to Scorched Earth. My name is Terri Harper and I am a glass artist. I live in a remote and beautiful part of the North Tyne Valley, Northumberland.
I would welcome your feedback on my artwork, so please feel free to comment on my blog or send a message via my contact page.
Glass is an amazing, versatile material that occurs naturally in organic form (for instance, as the rock obsidian). Natural forms of glass were created as a result of the Earth's magma cooling, or through volcanic eruption, or by meteorite impact. Man has been creating glass for over 4,000 years, largely from silica (sand), soda and lime, with a myriad uses from the purely decorative to the highly functional.
