Colette Halstead

Glass artist Colette Halstead is based in Lancashire, England. Using traditional techniques of kiln fused glass and leaded glass she produces wall panels, vessels, and jewellery which can be found in galleries throughout the UK. Colette discovered the potential of glass in 2004 after graduating with a BA (hons.) in Fine Art Printmaking and has taught kiln fused and stained glass since 2007.

Inspired by British skylines, in particular Lancashire, Colette Halstead uses kiln fused techniques to produce her leaf and landscape series in glass. Also a fine art printmaker, Colette translates etching aesthetic processes, texture and surface into the glass, capturing the mood and atmosphere of each leaf and landscape.

Colette uses leaves taken from the landscapes and introduces them into each of her pieces using unique methods developed by herself. Organic anise, hawthorn, ivy, rose, astilbe, grasses and others mark their organic shadowy silhouettes in the kiln glass, capturing permanent memories of their once leafy existence. Leaves are gathered from different locations in the picturesque county Lancashire, from the lanes Over Wyre to the edge of Tolkien’s Bowland.

Where the river Brock cuts its way through the landscape a local beauty spot known as Brock Bottom provides a wonderful array of leaves growing along the river’s edge. Each piece is as unique as the leaves captured within it: no two pieces can ever be the same. Her landscapes take the form of wall art pieces, vessels, coasters sets and curved freestanding sculptures.

Inspired by nature and driven for a desire to feel a connection to the organic feel of her work Colette chose Pilling in Lancashire as the ideal location to base her workshop. With a stunning vista to open countryside and a peaceful tranquility it helps her to feel driven to create, while being only a short distance from both Blackpool and Preston it provides the ideal location for holding courses for people seeking to learn about creating stunning pieces of glass for themselves.
