Angela Thwaites


Angela is an internationally active artist, educator and author. Her artistic practice focuses not only on individual sculptures, but includes commissions and site responsive works. Her first degree was in Ceramics and Glass and in the early 1980’s she was awarded British Council scholarships to study MA in Prague with Professor Stanislav Libensky.

1999-2001 Angela was a researcher at the Royal College of Art working on a project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council focused on refractory mould making for kiln casting glass. As a result of this, Angela was commissioned by A & C Black to write her first book, Mould Making for Glass, published in 2011. The book has led to a variety of international invitations to teach and present including master classes in Turkey, Germany and the Netherlands and conferences in Australia and Southern Ireland.

Angela has recently started a PhD study at the University of Sunderland.
