Anthony McCabe

I studied Glass and Ceramics at Stoke-on-Trent, moving to working in the IT Industry for thirty years where I had a number of roles, returning full circle, doing an MA in 'Applied Art and Design' at Wolverhampton University in 2017, working in Hot glass from a studio furnace. My blown forms are influenced from the ancient shape of the 'Amphora', a shape known to the Romans and before them the people of Mesopotamia, the later an area that caught my imagination after a University visit to the British Museum, where we were allowed behind the scenes to handle pieces 4,000 years old and were told how that region helped found civilization as we know it.
