Biography

Siddy has been glass blowing for over 30 years using molten glass gathered from the furnace and precious metals such as gold, silver and tin. Siddy fashions each individual piece by hand. The freeblowing technique ensures that each signed and dated piece is quite unique. Most of the decoration is applied before the glass is blown, growing with the piece to form the delicate and intricate patterns that characterise her work. Sometimes she uses her pet ghecko, Izzy, as a model.


Artist Statement

The making of glass combines all the elements – earth, wind, fire and water, and as such seems a wholly natural process. The decoration of the glass is applied before the glass is blown, growing with the piece to form delicate and intricate patterns. I’ve had a twenty eight year love affair with glass that, even now, is showing no signs of abating. It enables me to express myself like no other medium I have ever found.  At it’s best, when one is working, it is like performing an intricate, choreographed dance with the glass. Equal partners working together to express a thought or idea.
