In Focus: Vic Bamforth

Contemporary glass artist Vic Bamforth has long been a regular exhibitor at the National Glass Fair. He always brings along a good selection of his world class art glass and the next fair will be no exception.

The basics that drive Vic Bamforth's work are colour, movement and the unique properties and qualities of the medium of glass. Glass has provided Vic with an ideal three-dimensional canvas to carry figurative, often humorous, content.

All Vic Bamforth's pieces are hand blown, but it is his own personal approach to glass making that has set him apart from other glass artists. This is especially the case when it comes to the work he creates using a highly unique painted graal technique (see above for an example).

Visit the May 2014 Contemporary Preview Gallery to view further examples of glass by Vic Bamforth. You will also find a good variety of glass by other contemporary glass artists.

Visit our In Focus page for more selected highlights from our May 2014 preview gallery.
