Bill and Jacquie McNeill have been award winning designers and makers of Blown and Kiln Fused Glass for over 14 years. Bill McNeill graduated from Sunderland University with a degree in 3D Glass Design and followed this with another year training in glass techniques and technology at the International Glass Centre between 1996-97. Jacquie McNeill studied art, design and textiles before also attending the International Glass Centre in the same year. Both artists had an early interest in combining glass with textiles and this has led to their unique approach to design and glass-making.
They have had many years working within the contemporary glass market, and have gained experience within several glass studios, also establishing and running their own successful glass gallery.New commitments have taken McNeill Glass to the heart of Lincolnshire, where their workshop has been located for the last year, in the city of Lincoln. Their approach to the medium of glass has resulted in some of the most aesthetic and decorative handmade glass throughout the UK. They use a variety of techniques within their products, the most prominent being the intricate layering of semi-precious metal leaf. They have also developed elaborate glass cutting and hand building methods, which are shown in their stunning, limited edition designs.
