Tlws' name is Welsh. She trained in ceramics and glass and graduated with a BA (Hons) in 1996. With the help of a Southern Arts Grant she set up her own workshop where she makes large kiln formed, cast glass sculptures and fused glass designs.

Tlws' work is organic and colourful and more recently has been based on ancient stones.  The work is original one-off pieces with a few limited editions. Her studio at Gawcott is open during Bucks Art week (last two weeks of June)

The Corning Museum of Glass, New York, annually selects 100 international artists for this contemporary review. Tlws' work was chosen from 2000 other artists and is illustrated in
Neues Glas Magazine, May 1997.
