Greg Anston-Race

Contempoary Hand Made Glass Art

Gregg was born in Truro and has lived in Cornwall all of his life, growing up in the area of North Cornwall. Regular days out to the coast and to the moors, exploring old mine workings naturally means that most of Gregg’s inspiration for his designs come from the rugged coastline of this area and from the mining history of Cornwall.

Originally working with coloured glass, he went on to use mineral foils in the glass. This work was greatly influenced by the colours and effects he found in the deposits of metal ores in the old mine workings he had explored as a child, he stayed working in mineral foils until he felt he had developed this medium as far as it could go.

Feeling the need to stretch himself and to take his work on to a higher level, to create more flowing and organic lines in the work and develop new textures, more creative techniques and exciting colours. He now works mostly with coloured glass powder, producing vibrant and organic works of art.
