Best bespoke glass

A Shropshire artist is celebrating after reaching the regional finals of the Rural Business Awards. Jill Bagnall, who owns Fusing Ideas Glass based at Worthen near Shrewsbury, is the Midlands finalist for the Best Rural Creative, Artisan or Crafts Business.

Jill started off as a garden designer before a shift to working with fusing glass. She launched her own business four year ago and creates a wide variety of handmade products, from bespoke coasters and tableware to unique pieces of art glass including her popular tapestry glass pieces.

Jill also hosts creative glass workshops at her studio for adults, groups and more recently a workshop for youngsters which allows them to experiment with pre-treated glass. Jill said, “Creating is an amazing form of therapy. As children we play creatively throughout our childhood but as adults, we forget to take time to play and relax. Time for ourselves is so important and with our busy lives we don’t always get that chance.”
