Thanks for joining me on my new adventure!
Hi I'm Annette Whelan and I have been a Fused Glass Maker, honing my craft for over 20 years. Over this time many lovely customers have visited and purchased glass art from my open Studio located in Kilmore Quay, Co. Wexford, the heart of Ireland's Ancient East. My work is greatly influenced by a love of the sea, family and a passion for colour. Due to the Covid 19 pandemic my studio closed to the public and I embarked on a new exciting journey....creating and launching the wonderful world of annettewhelan.com my online store. This coming year 2022 I have no plans to open my doors to the public. I still haven't adjusted to life after the pandemic, my head is still a bit messed up and this reclusive hermit isn't ready to take on the public yet. Sorry! My work can be purchased here online or from The Village Garden shop in Kilmore Quay.
This is one of my favourite pieces of Fused Glass moveable Art which I created for an exhibition a number of years ago. The magic of this piece when awoken by a shaft of light is breath taking. It has been a constant source of pride, joy and sometimes disbelief that I created this beautiful piece of Art.
