Sue Burne Glass Engraver
I live in Somerset, UK and my work is in a number of galleries. As an elected Craft Member of the Guild of Somerset Craftsmen my work can be seen in the Courthouse Gallery of the Somerset Guild of Craftsmen in Somerton, Somerset.
My work is drill engraved using diamond and stone burs.
Nationally The Guild of Glass Engravers has assessed my glass engraving and I was awarded a prestigious Associate Fellowship in 2009. I have exhibited in several national exhibitions of the Guild of Glass Engravers.
Much of my work is commissioned and some is now abroad as well as in the UK. I am inspired by the beautiful countryside around my home and by my love of the sea. Flora and fauna both real and imaginary feature in the designs I create. There are examples of the wildlife of the Somerset Levels and the West Somerset coast but also mythical beasts such as dragons and the Phoenix.
I have also done large scale church commissions.
