Will Shakspeare, of Shakspeare Glass, is one of the UK’s best-known glass blowers. He set up Shakspeare Glass over 25 years ago and has achieved great success with his uniquely creative glass art.

 

Based at his studio in Langport, Somerset, Will works with a small and talented team of glass assistants. He is a keen member of the community and has had lots of great help with the business from some lovely locals.

More recently, Will has been joined by his wife Kate who manages sales and marketing. Shakspeare Glass has featured regularly in the press and on TV.

Will’s TV appearances include Inside The Factory, Kirstie Allsop’s Homemade Home and Homemade Christmas. He has also featured in the Telegraph Magazine with David Nicholls.

Many galleries and shops as well as private collections, both in the UK and internationally hold Will’s work.

 

He says: “I make a wide range of different designs which are constantly evolving. I deliberately design glass with a random factor, something that is out of my control. I also try and use colour so that it affects the final shape of the piece in a natural, fluid way. It means that I work with the glass rather than completely imposing my own ‘will’ on it as it were!”
