It’s all change at Made in Ross. Members of the arts and crafts collective based in the Market House in the centre of Ross-on-Wye are delighted that two new artists have joined their group. 

Myra Fricker and Claire McKnight both work in glass and their vibrant work now floods the gallery with colour.

Myra moved to the area from London and specialises in kiln formed glass, working with the free flowing forms that can be produced using combinations of vibrant colours; images that change with the light.

Myra starts her work with a copper wire ’drawing’, bending or cutting it to shape her images. You can see the copper wire sandwiched between two layers of glass; it may trap air bubbles which can be brilliant, it’s the unpredictability of the medium that fascinates and makes each piece unique.

Painter Claire McKnight has recently returned from Wiltshire to Symonds Yat. Claire’s stained glass is available in many forms, from windows, decorative hangings and more recently lamps and lights which can be lit and enjoyed at any time. Claire’s glass is a translucent version of her paintings and often tells a story of mystical realism.

The work of both these amazing artists is available to view in The Market House, which is open daily, from 10am until 4pm. For more information, please visit, or call 01989 769398
