Glass Harmony  by Trudi Schaller Mackay

Welcome to Glass Harmony

Trudi at Glass Harmony uses stained, fused and recycled glass to create unique artisan items including hand crafted jewellery finishing her jewellery with cork and mostly magnetic clasps. She uses cork as it is a natural material and she has introduced magnetic clasps as through her work with disable people over the years she is aware how difficult alternative clasps can be to use.

From her new studio she designs, cuts, fires, fused items on which she hand “paints” scenes using glass powders, fine and course frit. She also creates unique designs by moulding different pieces of colourful glass into interesting and decorative pieces, some depicting scenes, animals or designs where you can use your imagination to decide what they depict. Much of her recent work has been inspired by the natural beauty of Scotland as well as recent trips to Madeira and Australia’s Barrier reef.

She creates decorative window art but she also makes useful items such as bowls and spoon rests in addition to unique glass pictures which hang on the wall or on small artist easels.

Trudi is very aware of environmental issues so she endeavours to be as eco-friendly as possible in her work using recycled glass whenever possible and sustainably produced natural products such as cork in the making of her jewellery.

They will be able to discuss with her what influences her work much as we have explained it tells stories through Celtic Folklore & Pictish symbolism inspired by her 30 year stay in Dunning; producing contemporary pieces thus linking the past with the present. Her interest in ancient languages such as Ogham which uses symbols based on trees.

Trudi has an extensive resource library and interest in symbols used in Ogham, Tarot, Runes and Shaman which she can share with participants. This will be an unusual opportunity to discuss aspects of art and culture with an artist in residence.
