Amanda Edgcombe

Amanda revealed unexpected expressive possibilities and the effects of transparency and opacity in an architectural medium; large-scale hand finished architectural glass.

Amanda Edgcombe was born and grew up in London, she studied at Nottingham Polytechnic for BA and the Slade for her MA in printmaking under Bartolomeu dos Santos, Stanley Jones and Oona Grimes and brings together her experience as an artist, researcher and designer. Her work has been shown in the UK and her house was featured in the Idler 2021.
Since moving to Suffolk in 2005 with her family Amanda embarked a series of projects for clients developing her ideas in architectural and landscape design. Amanda returned to the studio and painting in 2008 using new materials associated with these commissions. Combined with her practice experience from different fine art disciplines, etching techniques in both printmaking and architectural glass and a continuing interest in pattern, her studio work became more architectural.
