Vicky Higginson completed her MA in Glass at the University of Sunderland having previously graduated with a degree in 3D Design from Manchester Metropolitan University, specialising in hot glass.
Vicky draws inspiration from a diverse range of sources such as museology, ethnography and anthropology. She works to interpret her own experience of cultures, people and place whilst celebrating the medium of glass. Vicky's most recent work is influenced by her reverence for the skill and aesthetic of the arts of Japan, and is also a personal interpretation of Japanese art and culture. By assimilating certain artistic tropes and ideals but combining these with non-traditional materials and decoration, Vicky's work contrasts tradition with modernity, reflecting her experience of modern Japan.
