Colin Reid is regarded as a pioneer in the field of kilncast glass. He exhibits internationally and has work in over 35 museum collections worldwide. He has undertaken many public and private commissions often combining glass with other media such as metal, stone or wood. Based in his studio in SW England, Colin has developed the expertise and facilities to handle large scale commissions in glass.
My practice includes conceptual sculptural pieces, as well as architectural and site-specific installations. I am inspired by geometry, abstraction and architecture. I use lost wax casting to create negative spaces within the form of a piece, which distorts and refracts through the density of glass and can represent deeper perspectives.
I have recently moved to the North Kent Coast after 26 years of dreaming about living by the sea. The ever changing light, weather and seasons inspire my glass work. I find inspiration from the colours and forms found in nature to the multi coloured beach huts and deckchairs found along the beautiful North Kent Coast.

Tony Roberts' artwork often incorporates glass, stained, cast, and laminated with other materials, typically steel and stone. His work is collected and shown internationally in both private and public installations. He works to commission, but also creates a body of original work which may be seen at his studios and gallery on the Welsh borders.
I am a part time student at Wolverhampton University studying a MA in Applied Arts specialising in glass, having previously spent two years at the International Glass centre at Dudley College, on a 3D glass course and latterly on the Associateship in glass.
