GLASSTORM is a Highland based contemporary glass studio based in Tain, Ross-shire and was established in 2005 by Glass Artists Brodie Nairn and Nichola Burns. Both artists have worked with many of the leading glass designers/makers within Europe and the USA most notably Philip Baldwin & Monica Guggisberg, Michael Kramer & Richard Price. Using their knowledge of Scandinavian and Italian glass making techniques to great effect they design and make limited edition production pieces, one off unique art glass, installation and public art works.
Working professionally in all aspects of traditional leaded glass: Designing, Painting, manufacture & restoration,
as well as the making and creating of contemporary kiln formed glass.
Michael has been a professional stained glass artist for over 20 years, but now specialises in contemporary fused glass wall art. He supplies galleries and interior designers throughout the UK, as well as working on bespoke commissions for restaurants, public foyers and private clients.
Jenia is an artist who works exclusively with recycled glass sourced mainly from bottles. She has studied stained glass design for three years. She also studied jewellery design at the University of Cumbria in Carlisle. Her appreciation of glass as an artistic medium combined with concern for the future of our environment and the desire to lead and promote a sustainable lifestyle encouraged her to devise a unique brand of fused glass designs. For her work Jenia employs simple shapes, which allow her to showcase the striking patterns developed to use a limited palette of available colours.
