Phaedra Politis

Home / Gallery / Phaedra Politis

Phaedra originally trained as a glass-maker in Bath over ten years ago, and since then she has continued to work on her designs and techniques to create ever more subtle and fine glassware. Much of her inspiration comes from her Welsh/Greek childhood, with hours spent playing in the mountains amongst the subtle tones of the heathers, wild grasses and moss-covered rocks of north Wales, interspersed with annual holidays to Greece with its intense colours, vivid turquoise sea and amazing sunsets. Now, drawing on both the colours of her past and her love of nature, Phaedra creates glassware in palettes that vary from soft and subtle tones of green and turquoise to vibrant reds and yellows, with designs and motifs taken from the countryside around her home in Frome as well as from childhood memories.
