This DVD is aimed at both the skilled hot glass worker and the beginner who wishes to gain an insight into this fascinating skill and maybe develop their own glass sculpture business.

Bob started his glass-sculpturing career in January 1955 when he started work at Pirelli Glass, Potters Bar, North London. In May of that year he was formally signed as "Bench Blowpipe Glass Modeller" apprentice. He finally qualified in May 1960 having worked on a broad range of glass sculptures.


Hot glass working has always been a major part of his life and he has given countless demonstrations in schools, clubs and various learned societies and has also taught in the Midlands.
