Sun Ju Park

Sun Ju Park is a freelance glass artist and has worked for many years in the U.K. She studied Glass & Architecture (P.G.) at Central Saint Martins College, University of the Arts London in the U.K. She has recently completed commercial glass contracts for Ince and Co. and Queen Anne’s Chambers. Her work marries the tradition of Fine art in Korea and Mural painting in India. She specialises in fusing glass, acid etching and painting in glass for free-standing glass sculptures. Her work uses techniques from silkscreening, painting, as well as acid and etching with sand blasting techniques finished in the kiln. Her coming project is for 56 glass panels 800cm high for the coming hotel Queen Anne’s Chambers in Westminster. It might be of interest to present materials from this at the exhibition. She has architectural drawing for the design and layout of there, which would be of interest.

Dear Sun Ju,
Your work is beautiful. I am contacting you in my capacity as Awards Coordinator for the Worshipful Company of Glaziers and Painters of Glass. We are trying to get hold of all our past award winners to ask them how winning an award effected their career.

Please could you give my your personal email address, I have a letter to send to you following your 2002 win of the Stevens Competition. I would like to ask you how winning the award effected your career and what improvements you can suggest to how we run the award and how best you feel we can spend our money to enhance the careers of stained glass artists. We are reviewing the awards. Please include both positive and negative comments on your experience of winning the prize and any suggestions on what we could do to support emerging artists.

Thank you and kind regards.
