Helena Ross

Helena Ross trained in Architectural Stained Glass at the Swansea Institute, now the University of Wales Trinity Saint David. With an interest in graphic design and colour harmonies and contrasts, her large scale work used bold designs combined with intricate detail. The joy of working with colour in stained glass inspired her to explore ways of achieving the same in smaller pieces of decorative glass. Her novel ColourWave work explores the use of small scale colour stripe textures in glass that are used to form larger scale drifts of colour. Using thin rods of coloured glass from a limited colour palette, she creates blends of colours which can be varied across the surface of the object. By restricting the palette, colours blend through a Pointillist means. This allows smoothly-controlled colour transitions with often strong colour contrasts between adjacent elements. These ColourWave effects are unusual in glass, as the blending process allows total control of colours on the finished product. With over 15 years’ experience in the design and technical control of glass processes, she produces a range of glass pieces using this approach. “Glass is a wonderful medium, and I hope my works shows a novel way of using it to make a wide variety of attractive colour pieces. I enjoy the challenges of developing effective and sometimes unusual colour blends, followed by the crafting of the end product, armed with glass cutters, a kiln and shaping and finishing tools”.
