Laura Smith

Laura specialises in contemporary hand blown glass combined with copper. With the two materials she designs and makes decorative and sculptural collections of work. Inspiration comes from the underwater landscape and the combination of the manmade and nature, looking at objects such as buoys, bottles or even disused oil platforms and how they become a habitat for nature to grow.
