About the Artist
Teign Valley Glass was set up in Teignmouth, Devon, England in 1981 to make specialist handmade marbles for House of Marbles. The aim was to reproduce the specialist techniques of Victorian glass makers. The first glassblowers of the glassworks brought generations of skill and experience from some of Britain’s leading glass houses – Whitefriars, Stuart Crystal, Galway and Cumbria Crystal to name but a few. It soon became clear that the team had the skills to make so much more than marbles, and Teign Valley Glass was born as a separate enterprise. Teign Valley Glass now make a wide selection of beautiful glassware and supply galleries and stores across the world. Since its inception Teign Valley Glass has been producing stylish and collectable glassware. The work captures the essence of the glassworks location in the South West of England and is inspired by the stunning moors and beaches of the region.
