Title:  Contour Bowl
Description: Blown Glass
Artist: Bob Crooks
Profile: Bob Crooks’ work is hand-made, no moulds are used. Because of this, no two pieces are alike, but the skill of the glassmaker ensures that pieces can be similar. His work is a “reaction” against the boring factory made glassware, against re-vamped ideas that date back decades and are so bland". He tries to exploit the many properties of glass through refraction, sharpness, distortion, reflection and softness, working with its fluidity and freezing the glass as a desired form is realised. The new production range has been designed to be refreshingly different and modern, still using the traditional glassmaking skills. Each piece is individually signed. He has exhibited widely both in solo and group shows. These include Contemporary Applied Arts, London; Christies Contemporary Art; Crafts Council, London; Lane Crawford, Hong Kong; Shanghai, China. Commission range from wine bars to exclusive glass ranges for the Victoria & Albert Museum, London. All Pictures of Bob Crooks work in the site are by Ian Jackson
