Esbe’s style and work have always been vibrantly eclectic. Having worked as an interior and graphic designer, magazine illustrator and on window displays, she became entranced with glass and Perspex.
Esbe’s inspirations are the delicate draughtsmanship of the Art Deco era, vibrant Pop Art and contemporary design. She works with glass in a variety of techniques including deep engraving and water-jet cutting, silver and gold enamel, acrylic and translucent vinyl. Some of Esbe’s most successful pieces present stylised images on clear glass. This allows the figure to ‘float’ on the wall, blurring the boundary between sculpture and wall art, and losing the traditional glass mounted images which are both wall-hung and free-standing.
