Simon Bruntnell, 2011

I am an applied artist working mostly in glass as I love its transparency and versatility. I am a material process led maker and I love to experiment and learn new processes. I am currently focussed on kiln casting.
Music and the human form are key elements in my work which has developed through dance, movement, silhouettes and street art. 'Journeys' is a theme I am now focussed on which combines these elements.

Julia works to a variety of scales with previous projects ranging from sensitive hand held pieces through to public art. Graduating from the University of Wolverhampton with a First Class Honours degree in Glass, Julia works to commission and is currently undertaking her MA in Art & Design.

I am fascinated by how light captures form and brings it to life, changing with the seasons, the day or even moment by moment. In this respect working with glass has been a natural progression of 25 years practising as an architect.

With architecture I work with my clients on creating sustainable design through considering the experience of being in a space, the connections with the outside world and how the building sits in its environment, with glass however colour also becomes an integral dimension that infuses the design with life and lifts the spirit.

Double Bubble

For the last thirty five years I have had a dual career of builder and glass blower. I have always hoped I would die at the glory hole but now that seems unlikely. The price of gas has gone through the roof and rightly so. Currently I am on sabbatical and am an elderly but full time builder.

Julia Rutty

My work is informed by memories and experiences which are personal to me. I am an avid collector of momentos and a keeper of journals, diaries and scrapbooks and I sometimes take time to look back to see what has led me to this point in my life.
