Why Untold Tales?Untold Tales is the story of a journey, undertaken by two flameworkers, Emma Mackintosh and Sabine Little. For one year, we will undertake a creative challenge of tackling one fairytale each month, and use it to inspire our work in glass, both individually and collaboratively. We'll try to find new angles to the old stories, hence 'Untold Tales'. At the same time, we hope that sharing our thoughts behind pieces, and the journey of their creation, will shed light on the 'Untold Tales' of creative processes, help us develop as artists, and, frankly, be a lot of fun!
