A Flame with Desire
Unique and individual glassware, tableware and gifts inspired by Lake District landscapes, colours and textures. Borosilicate glass heated, blown and sculpted in the very hot gas-fired flame of a small bench torch. This way of working uses a blend of scientific and artistic techniques as well as methods of working developed in the studio. It is intimate and very different to furnace-blown glass. As the glass starts to melt, it feels as if it comes alive – every hand movement, every change in temperature or flame atmosphere, each breath has an effect on the final piece.
