Will Shakespeare – Glassmaker
Will set up Shakespeare Glass over 25 years ago in the back of his garage in Burnham on Sea; producing contemporary handmade art glass for galleries around the UK and overseas. He has also spent time as a consultant in glass production and design in Central and South America. He now resides and works from his studio, deep in the Somerset levels – surrounded by a small and very talented team.
Will continues to make a wide range of ever-evolving designs, with clever use of colour; for The Collected he has created an exclusive design and colourway, with our hand-blown tumblers (£35).
“Will’s tumblers are so satisfyingly chunky and substantial to hold. We love to mix and match the jewel-like colours to add colour to a simple table-setting. Great for drinks but also in a bathroom, on a desk or dressing table. The marbled texture catches the light beautifully and the hand-blown technique ensures each one is a complete one-off.” Tarnya
