Penny has been making glass since graduating from West Surrey College of art and Design in 1987. The techniques are very similar to hot glass blowing, glass alters from a liquid to a solid as temperatures vary, responding to forces such as centrifugal movement and gravity. Penny uses Italian Murano glass rods melted in a flame at temperatures between 800-900oc.The molten glass is manipulated on a mandrel (a metal rod) and then colours are applied, dots, spots and bands of opaque or transparent colour.
