Sasha Ward has worked in architectural glass for thirty years.
She trained in stained glass at The Central School, London, then
studied Fine Art at Trent Polytechnic, followed by an MA in glass
from the RCA. She has her own studio in Wiltshire but also works
with manufacturers to produce large scale work for public buildings
using a variety of materials and techniques. Her work can be seen
in over seventy public buildings throughout the UK.
Describe you approach to teaching:
I like students to experiment with materials and designs rather than work to a pattern. I encourage simplicity in design with detail achieved through glass painting and sandblasting.
What inspires your own work?
I learn from looking at examples of glass and other decorative arts in the buildings we see around us every day.
