Effie Burns

2012 QEST Scholar - Glass Engraving

Effie established her glass studio in 1999 and since then her practice has been concerned with glass and its ability to transform space. As an artist she works across a broad range of projects both sculptural and in the public realm. She has exhibited her sculptural work internationally with Contemporary Applied Arts in London and the Crafts Council in Tokyo.

A QEST Scholarship enabled Effie to study glass engraving in Bavaria with Katharine Coleman MBE. A piece of work that Effie created inspired by this experience was selected for the prestigious Coburg Prize for Contemporary Glass 2014 in Germany.

She has granted a Fellowship with the National Glass Centre in Sunderland
