Verity Pulford – In the Window, November 2021

November 2021

Part of Celebrating Craft


Verity Pulford is a glass artist living and working in rural North Wales.

She uses a variety of processes to create her work – combining kilnforming and architectural techniques in unique ways to create vessels, sculpture, lighting, installation, architectural and public art.

Verity’s work is inspired by organic structures – in particular the small details – the shapes and textures of algae, fungi, lichen, moss and ferns. She is fascinated by the cataloging of nature – natural history artifacts, early cyanotypes, x-rays, microscopic images of the human body and botanical drawings.

Verity is taking part in ‘Past Present Future’ at the Walker Art Gallery, starting 15 September 2021, as part of ‘A Year of Craft’ celebrating the Craft Councils 50th Anniversary.
