My interest in glass started from my work as a graphic designer in London and Edinburgh and has slowly grown into a passion for creating unique and original handmade pieces of glass. My inspiration is nature and the beautiful environment of Fife and Scotland and I incorporate beach combing finds and natural materials, amongst others, into some of my contemporary glass pieces.
Funky, bold and contemporary fused glass jewellery, tableware, tiles, garden features and giftware. Every piece is intended to make a statement. Inspirations such as art deco, Thai temples, coral reefs, the natural world, screen printing and the digital world infuse the work.
Brian Waugh specialises in making beautiful, original and figurative stained glass.
His art reflects not only the ideals of beauty, but also a fascination with the Romantic and Symbolic themes of passion, magic, love, loss, transformation-spiritual and physical.
I design and make traditional and contemporary furniture from locally sourced Scottish Hardwoods and sustainable world woods.My main pleasure lies in involving clients and helping them to achieve the design results they are looking for, whatever the project. I make all kinds of furniture including tables, chairs, shelving,cupboards,cabinets,garden furniture,kitchens,staircases as well as wooden fixtures and fittings. I also involve both stained and fused glass in my work. I am fully trained in furniture making and restoration
Brodie’s recent work explores tension and balance. He contrasts outer surfaces with inner shapes, sensual curves with hard edges.
He calls the original blown a ‘pod’ and, with this organic image in mind with great precision, he cuts through the glass to reveal its structure. This dissected work creates a window into another world where dancing curves and open spaces contrast and unite.
