Morpheus Glass is created by fused glass artist Stephanie Bowen and Graphic Designer Ian O’Brien.

Individuality is the focus of fused glass designer and maker Stephanie Bowen. Using a range of advanced glass fusing techniques, Stephanie makes beautiful, unique and original contemporary fused glass products. Stephanie’s passion for designing and making fused glass is inspired by the exploration of the materials she uses and the effects and textures possible. Combining colours and patterns fascinates her.

Stephanie’s interest in glass started over 15 years ago. After just one year of experimenting with several different techniques, Stephanie chose glass as her specialist subject for her degree at University. Since then, Stephanie has continued to learn new skills and develop her unique fused glass technique and is now one of the leading fused glass artists in the UK.

A variety of products is used to create the designs, ranging from glass powders, various sizes of glass grains, metal oxides, metal foils, wire and coloured glass. Layers of glass powders, sheets of glass, foils and glass grains all combine to create beautiful effects within Morpheus fused glass. Designs are laid out onto sheets of glass and the materials are built up in layers to produce the overall look that the fused glass will have. The fusing process involves applying heat to the finished creation in order to combine all the components together to create the fused glass.

Morpheus Glass has recently been specially commissioned by Wigan Council to produce a bespoke piece to be presented to the Duke of Gloucester on his visit to Wigan to officially open the Wigan Life Centre. This prestigious commission features key features of Wigan including Wigan pier, as well as the Diamond Jubilee emblem.
