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

In 1977, they established their first glass studio in Shropshire. Within a few years, they relocated to Otley, West Yorkshire to a new workshop in an old Victorian woollen mill. This mill 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.

They find inspiration in the world around them; landscapes, historical glass, architecture and the sea to name just a few.
