Nicola Aylott is a glass artist specialising in stained glass products & gifts. Following a career change, Nicola sought a new creative outlet and stumbled across copper foil glasswork by accident. Inspired by the countryside and the beautiful Yorkshire coast, many of her designs focus on the wildlife regularly spotted in the area.
Based in Hornsea, East Yorkshire, the business was founded in 2019 and offers a range of glass items such as hangers, suncatchers, clocks, mirrors, jewellery boxes and candle holders.
Each piece is handcrafted and the various patterns and natural marks within the glass sheets makes every piece unique. Pieces are hand drawn, creating a template which is then transferred onto a piece of glass. The glass is then cut by hand and the edges are smoothed using a glass grinder. Copper foil tape is applied to the edges, and finally the pieces are soldered together.
