Ruth and Andy Harrison are full time self-taught lampwork glass artists based in Burton-On-Trent.
Lampworking and jewellery design began as a hobby, quickly became an addiction followed soon after by us selling our business and creating our own studio to lampwork full time.
Glass is an obsession that satisfies us artistically as well as suiting our engineering backgrounds, melting various glass colours from various sources and cooling them to room temperature while instilling strength and durability requires a scientific approach. We are constantly inspired by the never ending palette of colour available to us and seeking the unexpected reactions that occur between them.
We are registered with the Self Representing Artists Scheme, and are a sponsor of the Self Representing Artist in Jewellery Design scheme.
Come along to any of the Arts & Crafts shows we attend to see our work "in the flesh" and watch us demonstrate how we make our beads and jewellery. See our Events Diary
page for details of upcoming shows.
What is lampwork?
Lampwork is the melting and shaping of glass, usually rods, in a flame.
