Anthony McCabe

Trained on a Design course in Glass and Ceramics at Stoke-on-Trent, moving to working in Industry for thirty years, returning full circle, doing an MA in 'Applied Art and Design' at Wolverhampton University in 2017, working in Glass as a medium. Using Hot glass, from a studio furnace, the blown forms evolve from the ancient shape of the 'Amphora', a shape known to the Romans and people of Mesopotamia, the later an area that inspired me after a visit to the British Museum, where I realised how that region helped found civilization as we know it.
