Sanders & Wallace Glass

Showing all 7 results

The artists Andrew Sanders & David Wallace met in Stoke on Trent in 1974 and they soon discovered a common interest in working with hot glass and blown glass in particular and started working together to create Sanders & Wallace Glass.

 

In 1977 they established their first glass studio in Shropshire and within a few years relocated to Otley, West Yorkshire to a new workshop in an old  Victorian woollen mill, which also provided workspace for a variety of other craftspeople. The Woollen Mill has since been re-developed and they have moved into a brand new studio.

 

When not creating beautiful art deco perfume bottle their commissions have included reproducing Viking and Egyptian glassware for the BBC.

Sanders & Wallace Glass is inspired by landscapes, historical glass, architecture and the sea to name just a few.

 

They take molten glass and transform it into beautiful objects and are primarily concerned with form, colour with an emphasis on the spontaneous and hidden qualities of glass. They try to capture that transitional moment when the liquid glass takes on its solid form.

 

Andrew and David have strived to perfect their glassmaking skills for over 30 years which has culminated in a body of work both unique and distinctive.

 

They have a warm colourful and robust style that draws the eye and entices you to touch the curvaceous contours of their glass pieces.
