Meet the Maker

Some of Keith's Favourite Glass Work
Keith - The Glassmaker

Artist Statement

A glass artist from St Leonards East Sussex, Keith’s focus is on the awe-inspiring art of Kiln fused glass.


Keith's glass evokes a sense of pure form and hidden complexity gained through his pursuit of perfection. He unites aesthetics, chemistry, physics and functionality through the exploration and manipulation of glass properties.


You can feel the endless adventure that Keith is willing to undertake and see the beauty of fused glass through his creative vision. Keith takes great pride in his work and strives to bring people joy.


Not bound by any one genre, Keith positively embraces the idea that his work should cross the boundaries of fun, frivolity and contemporary style.


By Nature an Engineer

  • Born in the very new town of Hemel Hempstead, Keith was a product of the Concorde era and a first-generation comprehensive school system at its best. A proactive and very capable ‘modern technologies' department inspired a creative but industrial/engineering-based love for design, form, functionality, new and classic materials.

  • Awarded 'Apprentice of the Year'  for the then mighty Hawker Sidley Engineering
    Group, his career as a satellite navigation engineer flourished until a career change was called for. 

  • A more sedentary existence started in Iraq and returning to the UK with the responsibility of managing numerous technology transfer projects from university to industry for over ten years.

  • A career highlight was to be the only designer to have two industrial products
    on display at the prestigious British Design Council Design Centre in London in the summer of 1992.

  • Raising a family accounted for another decade, during which time he used his creativity first to design, build and repair race cars for his sons and later, needing a new challenge, on glasswork. 

  • A major stroke in 2019 left Keith with a paralysed left arm and leg, however on his passion through bleak times and pandemic isolation Keith learnt to work through and with the challenges presented.

  • After three years of hard work, Keith was able to return to the creation of glass objects with a renewed focus and direction.

  • As well as running his small studio Keith now offers workshops and presents entertaining interactive audio-visual presentations and practical demonstrations to art societies across the UK.
