Bob Crooks

 

Bob Crooks is widely recognised as one of Britain’s foremost glassmakers, renowned for his exceptional craftsmanship. His work ranges from wine glasses to dramatic large-scale sculptural works.

Based in Devon, he has worked with hot glass for over 35 years – establishing an international reputation. His work has been exhibited and collected worldwide and continues to evolve in skill and scale. We have worked with Bob since 2000 and his work remains hugely popular with our customers.

Making glass is a form of alchemy; taking dull, opaque ingredients such as sand, ash, and metal ores, and applying intense heat to conjure new luminous shapes of saturated translucence.”

His sculptural pieces have recently escalated in size and are dramatic statements. They are full of intricate detail, demonstrating a masterly love of the material.
