Linda Izan and her inspiration for World of Glass
At the Private View of 'Light Fantastic', Linda Izan went to find the young female glassblower, Niki Steele, who had been her inspiration for the work '100 years - The Glassblower'
"I thanked her for her part in the development of the work and we discussed the important contribution that women have made and continue to make in the production of glass in Pilkington’s. The work that I produced spans a 100 year period starting with World War 1 and the contribution to the industry in a time of war and then arriving at Niki Steele’s glassblowing skills in the present time."
