Vicky Cottrell lives in rural Perthshire and is the founder and Creative Director of Goldfinch Gallery. Working in glass for a number of years, she has developed her own individual style, combining traditional methods - including painted, leaded and fused glass to produce unique, non-traditional pieces.
"My work is influenced by my immediate surroundings and interest in both ancient history and natural history as well as the vibrant colours, textures and the endless possibilities offered by this medium."
From her workshop in Comrie, Vicky Cottrell produces a diverse and unique range of glass, from traditional medieval stained-glass panels to more experimental decorative glass hangings, influenced by her love of folk art and ancient history. She also makes a range of fused-glass jewellery as well as hand-painted decorative gifts.
