NLC X CREATIVE ME PODCAST: HANNAH GIBSON

synopsis

Hosted by Ica Headlam, Creative Me Podcast has partnered with North Lands Creative to bring a series of conversations with glass artists across Europe. Part of ISGNE Glass Lives Week 2020 at North Lands Creative, each episode explores an individual’s personal and professional development along with their passion for working with glass. These conversations were made possible with the support from our funding partners Creative Scotland and Creative Europe.

Episode four is with Hannah Gibson who specialises in casting glass. A geologist originally from North Wales who has been residing in Scotland for a number of years Hannah’s work is very much rooted in sustainability and working with recycled glass. We also discussed the process involved with casting onto small lego figures which Hannah sees as a universally identifiable object that creates immediate connection and conversation.
