In 2004 she attended Rosella Chester’s glass workshop in Colchester, Essex. Mamsbridge quickly developed a love for fused glass and in 2009 decided to start selling her glass. Since then her techniques and the quality of her glass have developed considerably - there is nothing quite like creating and experimenting to hone your skills and teach you how different glasses fuse and different inclusions react.
Mansbridge love's colour and her glass clearly reflects this. Almost all of the pieces she makes delight in colour and most are designed to have light passing through them. Originally all her work was abstract, but in 2010 she began exploring how to represent nature in glass, in particular flowers, fish and wildlife. Manbridge likes to challenge herself to try new subjects and techniques and recently have started to explore how to create her landscape scenes using just glass.
