Handblown Glass by Malcolm Sutcliffe

To all our lovely customers and friends, the time has come for us to have a change. After 15 very happy years in Penryn we have closed the gallery and found a new studio.
OUR ONLINE SHOP SHOULD BE OPEN AGAIN LATE SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2017 (THE GALLERY HAS CLOSED)
We have settled in Wales near Llanwrtyd Wells and are in the process of setting up a new glass studio. We plan to re-open the online shop in late September 2017. More information can be found on our Facebook page.
All the glass is free blown, no moulds are used to shape the glass only wet newspaper, wooden blocks and the traditional glassmakers tools. Malcolm enjoys making bowls, vases, dishes and plates that have clean, smooth, simple shapes.
The watery theme of the coast and sea feature strongly in Malcolms work, with blue being a very dominant colour.
Since moving to Cornwall Malcolm has slowly moved away from the figurative designs, which were prominent, to producing more pieces just using colours, softly blended together, often combined with sandblasting which enhances the colours and removes the reflections.
