Charlie Macpherson creates unique pieces of hand blown contemporary glass. His approach
balances the simplicity of his forms with more complicated use of line and pattern.
He incorporates cane techniques in the blowing process, which are enhanced by polishing to
highlight areas of interest. He enjoys designing work that invites the viewer to look more
closely at the intricate details, seeing more than at first glance.
Working with blown glass is a very hand’s on experience, and the challenge has always been
to make work that uses the natural qualities of light, colour and transparency, creating pieces
that are both stimulating and aesthetic.
Charlie exhibits internationally and has pieces in both private and public collections. As well
as winning awards for his work, he has completed commissions for a number of major UK
