Bethany Wood is the founder and director of Blowfish Glass, an artist-led, hybrid gallery and hotshop. Bethany is a design graduate from De Monfort, specialising in glass making. She has focussed the previous 6 years developing her skills by working for renowned glass makers across the country. This summer Bethany completed a tour of hotshops and a residency in the US.
A collection of Bethany’s own work was launched 2 years ago and she exhibits with high end galleries and interior designers internationally as well as being an artist representative for many other prominent artists.
As a multidisciplinary artist Bethany merges her two artistic passions – painting and glass making – to create a series of Molten Landscapes. Bethany said
“I like to express myself with the fluidity of the material. The directional arrangement of a colour palette can form the depth of an abstract landscape. I use my own paintings as a reference whilst making my Molten’s in the hot shop. Each individual artwork from my series has been inspired by a specific place.”
Two Molten Landscapes artworks – Sahara and Steel are featured throughout the Botham Accounting website and our branding. The originals are on display in our meeting rooms and reception.
