BA (Hons) Three Dimensional Design

Nicholas Thomson

I am a designer-maker specialising in hot glass. My work explores the unique properties of glass and pushes its technical boundaries in order to realise abstract, yet recognisable forms. Inspiration behind my work stems from a desire to see natural forms recreated in hot-sculpted and hand-blown glass. My pieces represent nature in a material that is very static and rigid and my desire is to create life and movement within my work. By combining materials and utilising light to add reflections and depth, my glass pieces capture a sense of motion and life.
