Sophie Byass: Glass Artist

After moving to the Macedon Ranges in 2000, Sophie took up classes in leadlighting, mosaics and a range of glass arts. Making fused glass jewellery became a quick favourite.

Sophie’s graphic design profession is reflected in her glass work with each piece carefully designed and considered before being kiln fired in her studio. Often several firings are needed after grinding back the edges to ensure a touch friendly finish. 

Over the years Sophie’s pieces have morphed from soft forms to a more angular, dynamic style, all displaying a simplicity, bold colours and the chance for the patterns in the glass to speak for themselves.

Sophie’s creations range from fused glass pendants, earrings, cuff links, brooches and rings, to tableware and mosaics.
