Sue Woolhouse specialises in design and commission led architectural glass production, drawing her clients from both the public and private sectors, including hospitals, theatres, galleries, museums and schools. All the work that Woolhouse undertakes is site specific and, as a consequence, the design briefs are usually very exacting.
Since 1989 Sue has run her architectural practise out of 36 Lime Street the Ouseburn Valley, Newcastle upon Tyne. In 2003 she moved to a larger studio in order to expand the artist led practise and to facilitate practical workshops and later in 2009 she invited Printmaker Theresa Easton to share the workshop, which has in itself led to further art-led collaborations.
The work is mainly one off bespoke pieces for clients and the final pieces are developed through research and engaging with the client upon an individual journey.
The work ranges from cast coloured glass sections to more intimate cast hanging panels for interior and exterior spaces, including awards and gifts. The work often encapsulating aspects of nature into the cast work and recently more illustrative work has come to the forefront with silk-screened enamelled work.
