Karen, Founder
Karen, Founder & Managing Director of KjGlass.

Hello! My name is Karen, I’m a contemporary artist based in Derbyshire, born and raised in Melbourne (UK). I love to create glass that is unique, beautiful and functional using various kiln formed glass techniques.

In 2003, I obtained a BA Honours degree in Ceramics with Glass Design. From that point, I saved up and steadily purchased all the materials and equipment required to make fused glass items. Since becoming self employed in 2013, I started selling my glass creations all over the world. I have been busy ever since!

I started my business initially under the name ‘Kj Glass designs’, but have recently re branded by simply shortening the name to ‘Kj Glass’. I am very proud of how well the business is doing and I’m so excited for the future.

I have had various stockists since ‘opening shop’, many local and some further afield such as the Falkland Islands Museum & National Trust. It’s been an honour to make customised pieces for the National Memorial Arboretum for the last two years and I will continue to do so for as long as they ask.

I believe creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes now and again, but art is knowing which ones to keep! It’s not what I look at that matters necessarily, it’s what I see and what I create using those images. My work is always evolving and I constantly try to push the boundaries of fused glass making.

Kj Glass

Kj Glass is based in Melbourne, U.K. and specialises in Handmade Fused Glass. The best bit… because each piece is individually crafted, almost every product can be personalised. Perhaps you have an idea of your own and you would like us to create it for you? Better still, why not book a workshop and come have a go making it yourself!
