Candice-Elena Greer
Creative Director

My move from fine art to studio glass began at London Glass Blowing in 1994 where in subsequent years I became a freelance curator specialising in glass jewellery and glass art exhibitions. In 2004 I was introduced to Nulife Glass’ unique furnace technology that recycles the glass from older style televisions, otherwise known as cathode ray tubes or CRTs. The process extracts metallic lead from the CRT glass and with my background in the creative sector and glass, I have collaborated with many artists to develop new products from the recycled material.
