Artist: Colin Reid

  • Colin Reid takes glass to its extreme to create pieces which are both majestic and magical. Over the past 30 years he has worked with this fragile material to create exquisite works of art which intrigue and invite us to wonder at how they are made. Colin’s sculpture has an extraordinary ability to make a first-time viewer stop and be drawn in to look carefully again and again. His brilliance has given him the cutting edge in kiln-cast glass and international recognition for his inspirational work.
