Handmade glass birds, a pair of Robins, by artist Emma Butler-Cole Aiken, who is based in the Scottish Borders. Emma is an architectural glass artist creating contemporary work using traditional materials. She has created around 75 commissioned works throught the UK. Emma is captivated by the colours, textures and exuberant beauty of glass. Seeking magical combinations of image and material, she strives to reach beyond the ordinary to create unique works which stand the test of time. Discerning when to allow a particular colour to shine out unhindered and when to bring control and distinction is a continuous process, the choices of possible outcomes almost overwhelming. In this creative process her faith and light emerge.
