“The starting point in my work is nature. I take details of observations I find in nature and use them
as a inspirational base to create my own abstraction, that then builds into a complex sculpture.
My inspiration comes from cycles of nature that I associate with glass making process because to
me the material is at it’s most alive when it’s hot and being transformed. The end result is solid and
doesn’t move any longer, it is at the fragile time before disintegration and maintains a dynamic form

Born in Gloucester in England, Nina grew up in rural central France in the middle of the
Burgundy countryside, in a house surrounded by the18th century buildings of a brick and tile
works. Coming from a potter’s family she has always been in the workshop making things with
her hands. Growing up in an environment of nature and craft has definitely influenced her life
and work so far.
Nina’s introduction to glass was in 2007 at l’Ecole National du verre in France before
attending art school at The Royal Danish Academy of fine arts, on Bornholm in Denmark.
She graduated in 2014 and has since been a resident artist in the USA at Starworks in
Star NC, Eair Program at Pilchuck Glass school in Stanwood,WA in 2015 and was a
resident artist in Kobe in Japan in October 2020.
Nina has shown her work in exhibitions in Europe, in the USA and Japan. Since she
moved to England in January 2018 her work is represented in galeries in London and
Edinburgh. She was one of the finalists at the British Glass biennale 2019 and is one of
the selected artists in an exhibition called “Young Masters” at London Glassblowing gallery
in September 2020.
