Derek Bransfield Glassmaker

I'm a glassblower, designing and making contemporary blown vessels.


My current work is influenced by Powell & Sons, the 19th century English glasshouse that became Whitefriars.


I have sought to recreate the feel of Powell's work, rather than to copy it. To do this I have had to rediscover many of their techniques. Powell's 'look' was strongly influenced by historical Venetian styles.
