Inge Chappell is flamework artist and jewellery designer based in the historic village of Puhoi, north of Auckland, New Zealand. Formerly a Marketing Manager, Inge discovered glass bead making in 2009 whilst searching for a hobby to de-stress from the demands of corporate life. She says she soon became addicted to working with glass, giving her the ability to draw on both her creative and technical skills.
Inge says of her work “The exploration of colour is central to my practice as a glass artist. The use of bright, unusual colours as well as soft, subtle colours to create texture, symmetry and light is a feature of my work. I’m also attracted to form, and I particularly enjoy combining asymmetrical forms and creating unusual, organic shapes and objects using glass”.
