Vic Bamforth

Born 1952 Hull, East Yorkshire. Glass Techniques & Technology/Advanced Diploma in Design at Dudley College International Glass Centre 2001-2004. Now based at the Ruskin Glass Centre, Stourbridge - partner in Stourbridge Glassblowing Studio. Collected and exhibited internationally. Work held in collections of Broadfield House Glass Museum and Corning Museum of Glass.

Combining hand glassblowing and hand painting (high firing enamels) skills to create one-off pieces of art glass. Private commissions are what interest me as I am quite fond of telling a story that is capable of capturing memories and moments in time. Functional/sculptural, figurative/representational/abstract – more often than not infused with elements of humour.
