Flick Glass Studio
Frances Kierman, glass artist and founder of Flick Glass Studios, first became inspired by the wonders of glass while studying stained glass window making while at art school in Port Elizabeth in the early 90’s.
When she moved to Berkeley, California, in the mid-90’s, Frances started making jewellery and experimenting with new and exciting hot glass techniques which led her away from traditional stained glass window making.
In 2000, she became an apprentice in David Ruth’s prestigious architectural and sculptural kiln cast glass studio, where she obtained the knowledge and motivation to begin her own glass work.
Fueled by her interest, curiosity and love for the mysteries of glass forming, Frances returned to South African at the end of 2003 and set up Flick Glass Studios in Muizenberg Cape Town, South Africa.
In 2010, Frances started up My China Ceramics which has grown year after year and has established itself on the local and international arena.
Flick Inc. is the umbrella company for both Flick Glass as well as My China Ceramics and is growing itself in leaps and bounds.
