Iain's Glassworks

I have always loved the feel and appearance of glass. After a career in science & engineering, I have started exploring what I could achieve in glass. Glass is an amazing material. The way it reacts to heat, cold, pressure and abrasion can be surprising. Understand what the glass wants to do and you can make wonderful objects. Above all, I want my designs to be functional and useful, as well as beautiful.

Details about work or recent projects

I make functional forms in the kiln that are also beautiful - bowls, plates, dishes and containers. I also make leaded panels and windows.
