Samantha Yates is a stained glass artist based in Shipley, West Yorkshire. She uses the psuedonym Lil’ Rabbitfoot. Her Botanical pieces are rich in individual character, both naive and fun, revealing her appreciation of the natural environment, the simple beauty of nature and the happiness it can bring.
She works with both copperfoil and traditional lead techniques to playfully explore the limitations of her materials and techniques, presenting glass to the light through different botanical forms, patterns and structures.
Samantha has a unique background in Environmental Science, the Waste Management Industry and 12 years teaching Horticulture. A sustainable approach to her practice is reflected in her holistic choices of materials, resources and working methods. She is also plastic free.
