Fabrizia Bazzo is an artist and a maker creating architectural glass installations for both public and private locations. It was the contemplation of old stained glass – masterpieces of craftsmanship and spiritual beauty – that stimulated her curiosity and inspired her to abandon a previous career. She now embraces a contemporary approach to stained glass and is continually searching for new technical and creative challenges.
Fabrizia works from her own studio in Somerset where she creates works both to commission for specific client briefs, as well as exhibition panels. She uses a range of traditional and high-tech techniques to interpret her designs, including acid etching, sandblasting, painting, staining and lamination. Her works are always highly textured and multi-layered and are a fluid response utilising the vibrant qualities of the medium itself.
Fabrizia has received several awards, including winning the Stevens Competition twice (in 2007 and 2010) and the Contemporary Craft Fellowship awarded by the Crafts Council in 2009.
