DescriptionFounded in 1973 by International Glassmaker Michael Harris, Isle of Wight Studio Glass is readily recognised for the highly imaginative and original approach used in developing this magical material. Outstanding skill in design, in exploring new techniques and manufacturing has enabled I.O.W.S.G to become the leader in this field.
Glass has been produced for over 6000 years and today this ancient craft enjoys as much care and originality as ever and uses skills and materials that differ little from those of 13th Century Venice or 3rd Century Rome. The craftsmen are trained to "feel" and "control" the material with which they work, and produce shapes and forms of the highest quality.
The studio was converted from ancient farm buildings, just below the famed and beautiful St Lawrence Undercliff. The magnificent coastline and landscape surrounding the studio has inspired the development of the highly successful Seascape, Nightscape and Undercliff collections. Many of the richly coloured designs have won major awards and some are produced using 22ct Gold and Sterling Silver Leaf.
Today the company continues to prosper under the direction of the Harris family. In addition to the standard collections, Limited Editions and `one-off' pieces are produced, many using techniques such as `Graal' & multi-layered `casing' which demand tremendous artistic and technical skill. Isle of Wight Studio Glass is exported worldwide and can be found in many private and public collections.
One-off pieces or a collection of pieces can be personalised at Isle of Wight Studio Glass to individual designs, company logos, dates, names, etc.
