Meet The Maker
Meet The Maker:
Master glassmaker Stewart Hearn graduated from Sunderland Polytechnic in 1986, and has taken London Glassworks from strength to strength since its 2002 inception. In his work, he explores form, colour translucency and weight, while celebrating ancient techniques such as the Encalmo technique – a highly complex Venetian glassblowing method where different glass sections are fused together. Look out for time-honoured practices such as this in his designs, as well as the more unexpected pieces that offer a lens into his playful side.
