Laura Smith

Laura is a London based glass designer from the island of Bermuda. She draws extensively influence from both the island and her travels. Graduating from Edinburgh College of Art with a degree in glass design, she began working for a glass designer in London to further her glass skills. Setting up her practice in 2012 Laura’s focus was to create exquisite sculptural glasswork and use her extensive skills in hot glass making to capture the candescent qualities of glass combined with different metals. The influence of the ocean proves an endless fascination for Laura. By contrasting copper, silver and gold with the fluidity of the glass she creates forms and textures in the glass reflective of the underwater landscape. Designing and making glass is a constant inspiration and Laura endeavours to make unique work, which are both beautiful and functional.
