Product Details

A medium sized handblown glass bowl with swirling patches of colour, 13 cm high by 13 cm across. The substantial weight of this bowl due to the thick glass is belied by the light but bold abstract patterns.

Will Shakspeare (and that is how his name is spelt) set up his glass workshop with his wife Kate in 1988. He says of his work:
“I make a wide range of different designs which are constantly evolving. I deliberately design glass with a random factor, an aspect that is beyond my control. I try and use colour so that it affects the final shape of the piece in a natural and fluid way. In doing this I have to work with the glass rather than completely imposing my own constrictions. I rarely measure a piece or write down exactly how I have made it. Sometimes this can lead to difficulties but it does mean that each design is less absolute and can evolve within its own parameters. Glass, as I know it, is a fluid material and I try and reflect that in my work. Above all I want my work to speak for itself.”
