Hazel MacLennan Glass is already successful and Hazel has recently graduated with a Three Dimensional Design Degree from Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen.

After graduating Hazel became an artist in residence at Gray’s School, assisting other budding glass artists with their own styles and techniques and learning a lot herself at the same time.

Hazel, who hails from Aberdeenshire herself, specialised in glass and ceramics during her course. She works primarily with warm glass techniques, experimenting with kiln formed techniques such as slip casting, glass fusing, mold making and drop forming.

Hazel adores the “fascinating medium” of glass and constantly tries to push the boundaries and develop practice in both her work and in the work of the students under her tutelage.

As a designer and as an artist, Hazel feels that she has a responsibility to draw people’s attention to current global environmental issues. She uses her platform as an artist to disseminate ways that people can collaborate and join forces to tackle these important pressing issues.

Hazel tries to be aware of the environment when designing and tries to keep wastage and electricity usage to a minimum.

Hazel hopes to have her own Hazel MacLennan Glass studio very soon.
