Welcome to Bethan Yates Glass...

I am a Contemporary glass artist living and working in Wales. I graduated from the glass course at Swansea College of Art in 2019 and have since continued to primarily work and experiment with contemporary techniques. I love to create tactile, art glass that engages a sensory experience with the viewer.

Coming from a background in textiles, the main theme of my work is the translation of stitch and embroidery into glass. I’m interested in combining textures, layers and colours and exploring how these react and play with light.

My practice centres around the making process with sampling and experimentation heavily influencing the direction I take my work. Every piece of work I create is completely original, every piece is handmade and slightly different making each one special.
