Melissa’s Melting Pot
Handmade, simple and beautiful glass artwork made by Melissa Keskinkilinc
I am a glass and enamel artist, based in the Midlands. Having spent my childhood by the sea, memories of that time are reflected in my work. I am inspired by the world around me, and I have used my glass work to explore the world around me as a way to escape and travel.
Through experimenting with combining frit (small chunks of glass), powders and stringers (threads of glass) onto painted scenes using liquid glass enamels, it has allowed me to create my glass artwork in a unique way. I create larger pieces of fused glass artwork that use this technique, ranging from 10cm to 30cm. I have a range of work that is available to supply to galleries. This includes jewellery, homeware and artwork. These are at a range of different price points.
My work has been stocked in independent galleries in Nottingham, Stratford-upon-Avon, Kenilworth and Henley-in-Arden. I've also been a part of Warwickshire Open Studios. I would love to expand this and have my work in galleries across the UK, and even abroad!
