Maker in Focus: Will Shakspeare: Shakspeare Glass
We are delighted to exhibit a large selection of Shakspeare Glass this Christmas - from larger sculptures to beautiful vases and festive baubles.
Will Shakspeare is one of the country's best known glass blowers. He has been featured regularly in the press and on TV including Inside The Factory, Kirstie's Homemade Home and Kirstie's Homemade Christmas with Kirstie Allsopp, and in the Telegraph Magazine with David Nicholls. Will says:
It is interesting to see how a thread of an idea expands into a body of work, and in which direction it takes me. Sometimes I am not happy with where it is going, and at others I am pleased with where it has got to. At present I am in a landscape 'period' and enjoying a different way of looking at glass and bringing my inspiration home.
Will set up Shakspeare Glass over 25 years ago and has supplied many galleries and well-known stores in that time. He has also worked in Central and South America as a consultant in glass produc
