Stuart Akroyd is an award winning studio glass designer-maker based in the UK. He creates forms in vibrant colours and organic shapes. Instantly identifiable, his work possesses a sense of movement and grace within the solid form.
Stuart’s designs begin with an idea inspired by the world around him, after sketching the designs he progresses them by experimenting with the material and making a 3D form. These initial glass prototypes are then further refined to produce the final piece.
Stuart’s latest sculptural pieces, titled ‘Intention’, are a perfect example of this; inspired by the ‘Skylon’ structure (which became the symbol of the 1951 Festival of Britain) they are a solid stretched form encasing vibrant colours and presented on a steel stand.
