Will Shakspeare 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.”
