Stuart Akroyd is one of the best known studio glass designer-makers in the UK. He adapts traditional Venetian techniques to create forms in vibrant colours and organic shapes. Instantly identifiable his work possesses a sense of movement and grace within the solid form.
Stuart’s latest sculptural pieces, titled ‘Intention’, are a perfect example of this; a solid stretched form encasing vibrant colours and captured on a steel stand.
Stuart has been making glass for over 25 years. His glassmaking career began in the North East and he opened his own hot studio in Nottingham in 2000.
