My name is Niki Steel and I have enjoyed working with hot glass for nearing twelve years. The relationship with glass originated at University, initiated through a fascination of the material itself and has progressed for the very same reason.
Gaining experience in various differing types of glass studios whilst regularly accepting and taking on opportunities to work with other artists has proved fruitful and expanded my knowledge and skills in doing so. By developing these technical abilities with glass, my understanding of the material has become increasingly evident by the expanding complexities of my pieces. It is my desire to continue to use and improve these skills and experiences, simultaneously incorporating such aspects into my designs. It is essential to keep learning all the time when involved with glass, and I intend to continue for as long as I can.
My work is inspired by glass its self, playing with the beautiful optical qualities and often to create a sense of movement. Colour theory is also very strong in my pieces; I work with the primary and secondary colours in contrast with black to create a playful yet elegant colour palate. I always aspire to create pieces that draw the viewer in to see what is happening inside.
