Refined Elements

An expert glassblower with over 25 years experience (inclusive of a 16-year stint at London Glassblowing), Layne Rowe enjoys working with the vulnerable qualities of glass. Taking inspiration from his favourite places along the Devon coastline, the artist has an appreciation for the preciousness and fragility of the material, and the capacity to explore even the finest of details. He also has a feel for the historical element of glassblowing, a craft with routes in Ancient Syria circa 1st Century BC.

Layne is an excellent candidate for the celebration of studio glass during London Craft Week. Hear the artist in his own words, in “Out Of The Furnance” by Heist Films.
