Callula Glass

Callula Glass is a British brand of colourful fused glass designed and made by hand and kiln by Joanne Taylor, in her rural Cheshire workshop. Her inspiration comes in many forms; from the iridescent exoskeleton of a beetle to the peeling facade of a once brightly painted door.

“I just love to be surrounded by colour, from bold brights and pretty pastels to cool coastals and earthy neutrals.
I am endlessly fascinated with glass as a medium; the alchemy involved, its interplay with light, the tactile nature of a finished piece and the element of surprise when you open the kiln after many hours of heating and cooling.”

Joanne launched Callula Glass alongside studying towards a foundation degree in Contemporary Arts Practice at Leek School of Art.  This was followed by a BA (Hons) in Entrepreneurship for the Creative Industries at Staffordshire University where Joanne graduated with first class honours, specialising in glass.
