Nestled in the heart of the Kent countryside lies Cloverdale Glass Studio, born from the love of stained glass and the inspiration of the countryside surrounding us.
Hello, my name is Wendy Atkins. When we moved to our house, a transom (window above a door) caught my eye and I immediately felt that it called for a stained glass panel. The process intrigued me and so I thought I would learn how to make the panel myself and it started a love affair with the art form.
Since working with glass I have found the act of artistic expression through an art form which, with guidance, needs no intrinsic artistic ability to be of enormous benefit to the individual. So, I thought I would, not only continue making glass art to sell, but also share my studio and bring this beautiful art form to more people. In today’s fast moving and frenetic world, time away and the act of creating can calm the mind and body.
