Vickie Newington - Premium Artist

Working with textiles has been a lifelong pleasure for me, and fusing glass is a new love. I have a passion for trying new techniques and concoctions that can be adapted for my use as a glass and fibre artist.

I am fascinated by the richness of layering - the way an image appears and disappears underneath another image, allowing the viewer to make up their own stories about what the images are or what has happened. I work with lines, form and most especially texture. My new pieces are inspired by the colours and waves of water ruffled by the wind in a Yukon lake, tiny insect holes in the ground, weathered corrugated metal, or the drop-dead gorgeous changing hues of an Aurora Borealis. Fabric is tactile - it is warm, versatile, and very flexible. Depending on the final look I'm after, I can create a look that is hard and shiny, fuzzy and squishy, or crumbling due to age. Glass is just the opposite - it is hard, shiny, and does not 'give' at all. It provides a lovely contrast to the fibre.
