Artist : Katie Lynn
Katie Lynn is the creator of ‘Molten Wonky’ and ‘Wonkylands’, colourful worlds created using fused glass. Katie loves making quirky, colourful and original products. She works in a random and haphazard way and that is all part of her unique work.
Molten Wonky was set up in 2009 by Katie Lynn. Having studied Stained Glass at Chelsea School of Art, Katie had experience of working with the wonderful colours that are available in glass but found that she wanted to work in a freer more fluid way.
Katie bought a small kiln and started to fuse some of her designs. Her first range was a Christmas collection in 2010. Nugget jewels and the first ‘Wonkyland flowers’ were grown in 2011. ‘Wonkylove’ was introduced in 2012 for valentines day and 2013 bought quirky birds in to the range.
Colour and shape are a fundamental part of Katie Lynn’s work. She enjoys cutting, designing and fusing the glass together. Dichrioc pieces, wire, paint and millefiori are also added to create interest and to make each piece individual.
The Molten Wonky studio is in a farm building at Katie’s home near Saffron Walden in Essex where she holds workshops and open studio events.
