Bob Leatherbarrow

I am a Canadian who started working in kilnformed glass in 1988. Most of my work focuses on developing textures reflecting nature using glass powder. Along the way I've developed a keen interest in understanding how glass behaves during firing and how to create firing schedules. These interests have been published in 4 e-books and regular articles in Glass Art Magazine.

Recent projects involve some installation pieces and learning new skills in coldworking and lampworking.
