Many years ago, as a student of botany, Mim Brigham became fascinated by images of marram grass (which grows on sand dunes) cut and viewed through a microscope. Subequently she was working in social care and based in St Cleer when she took a degree at Plymouth College of Art, graduating in 2017. As a result she was selected to exhibit in the British Glass Biennale in August 2017.
She then produced a body of work entitled 'Microscopic' which has won her many accolades including the Devon Guild of Craftsmen Design Award. She has a kiln at home, and a studio at Flameworks in Plymouth. Her work, which combines her passion for art and science, can be seen in the Penwith Gallery in St Ives.
