Sally Fawkes

Sally Fawkes (born 1968 in London) is a British artist who casts her delicate metaphoric sculptures from clear optical glass employing transparent volume and an expression for space in such a way as to create jewel-like experiments in geometry. Equal parts sculptor and draughtsperson, Fawkes adorns her geometric pieces of kiln-cast glass with delicate carvings. Fawkes' approach to form is rooted in the fusion of the organic and the man-made, resulting in strong rhythmical forms that appeal to all senses of the viewer. For the past 13 years, she has worked alongside her partner Richard Jackson in a glass studio in Stroud. Their artistic practices were celebrated in a joint exhibition at MAVA (Museo de Arte en Vidrio de Alcorcón) in Spain in 2009. Her works have also been exhibited at Rabley Contemporary Drawing Center, Marlborough; Scottish Gallery, Edinburgh; The Lightbox, Woking; La Galerie Internationale du Verre, Biot; and Newby Hall and Gardens, Ripon, among others.
