Elizabeth Sinkova is an expressive architectural glass artist whose artworks are full of colour, motion and life. The first time she fell in love with the magical medium was in her early childhood: she grew up surrounded by glass, as both her parents are glass artists and creatives.
Proudly continuing the legacy in her Yorkshire studio, Elizabeth designs and creates hand-made glass for a variety of architectural and residential locations, as well as exhibitions. ‘Bringing the outside in’ often communicates Elizabeth’s inspirations from nature, which she celebrates and infuses into the glass with colour, textures and light. She creates through a combination of traditional and contemporary techniques such as hand painting, etching, fusing, airbrushing and embellishing with precious metals. All hand painted decorations are kiln fired, and along with all other processes, the art is weather friendly and permanent with the potential to last for many centuries.
Through glass Elizabeth conveys her vision, creating special bespoke pieces that are not only an uplifting compliment to buildings and their surroundings, but also bringing an aesthetical element which as the power to evoke positive feelings and sensory reactions for the viewer. She says, “Nature has become the inexhaustible source of inspiration for most of my designs. Also the influence of light enables me to capture new ideas and integrate them into the architectural artwork. Those qualities are embedded in suggestive images which approach both the viewer’s feelings and sensory reactions.”
