Handmade Blue Glass Sculpture ‘Murrine’ by Graeme Hawes
This stunning handmade blue glass sculpture ‘Murrine’ is a standalone glass art piece that will bring warmth to the centre of your table. This bowl-shaped glass sculpture was created by Graeme using the murrini style, where patterns are made using glass canes.
It may be diminutive in stature at 8 cm tall, yet it definitely creates a big impact! An exquisite blue colour dotted with orange circles and black squares makes this a stylish addition to any home, hotel or office.
N.B. Please note the image shown is an example of ones in the series. Slight variations in colour and form will occur as every piece is uniquely fashioned just for you. Therefore, no two pieces of Graeme Hawes Glass art are ever the same. Graeme personally signs each piece.

Handmade Blue Glass Sculpture Artist
Graeme Hawes is an incredibly talented and experienced glass artist. Graeme graduated with a BA (Hons) in 3D Design in ceramics and glass from Sunderland University. He then went on to gain an MA in glass design at the Royal College of Art (RCA).
Since completing his MA in 1995, Graeme has enjoyed working as a freelance glassmaker and designer. The movement and fluidity of the material in the making process is essential to the creation of his free hand-blown art glass. This fluidity is a key factor for his inspiration in the final design and form. Graeme enjoys making his own creative designs and also works to client specification.
Graeme’s beautiful and colourful glass sculptures are highly regarded and sought after. You can find his decorative and unique contemporary art glass in many shops and galleries throughout the UK and internationally.
Furthermore, his work has also been featured in many magazines, including The Guardian weekend supplement, The Sunday Times Style Magazine and Elle Decoration.
In addition to making and designing, Graeme also had the pleasure of teaching for many years. He was a senior lecturer at the School of Design, De Montfort University (DMU), Leicester. He also taught as a visiting lecturer at Buckinghamshire Chilterns University and Lancaster Central University. Graeme has stopped lecturing to concentrate on his own incredible designs such as this handmade blue glass sculpture.
