In Focus: Cameo Vase by Helen Millard

Cameo vase by Helen Millard

This vase is a fine example of the cameo glass produced by contemporary glass artist Helen Millard.

Cameo glass is a technique that dates back to the Roman empire and is created by carving through different coloured layers of glass to reveal a design in relief.

Cameo glass was revived in the late 19th century by pioneering glassmakers such as George Woodall. His work inspired manufacturers around the world and cameo glass was produced using a number of techniques up until WWII.

In recent years the boom in contemporary studio glass has resulted in various glass artists rediscovering and reviving the cameo technique.

Helen Millard’s work is very much in keeping with the late 19th century cameo produced by Woodall, Stevens & Williams and Thomas Webb & Sons. The illustrated vase is a typical example of her work and demonstrates how she celebrates the legacy of the 19th century masters and has made a name for herself as one of the finest cameo glass engravers in the UK
