About Greendolphins Glass

Greendolphins Glass

Having fun with glass, heat, time and gravity.

I work with glass.

In my studio/workshop in Kirkoswald, working from my own designs, I create kiln-formed pieces of glassware: one-off pieces of art; functional pieces, such as plates or coasters; decorative pieces, such as Christmas Tree ornaments; jewellery.

I also undertake commissions.

My working life BG (before glass) was bookended by art schools: Edinburgh, where I studied Architecture way back in the last century, and Glasgow School of Art, where I signed up for two classes at the Summer School in 2015: Introduction to Stained Glass and Introduction to Fused Glass.

It was the second of these which really sparked my imagination. Cutting up bits of glass and putting them in the kiln before leaving for the day: each morning was like Christmas.

At the same time I was completing the build of a new extension on my house, a room which, more and more, looked like a potential studio: the kiln arrived in November 2015.

Using the kiln, which heats the glass to up to 850 degrees celsius, I work with recycled glass (windows or bottles) and specialist art glass from the USA. My pieces may also incorporate wire, glass paint, metal foil, etc. The look and feel of the finished piece can vary, depending on how it is fired in the kiln.

I said I “work” with glass: more accurate to say I “play” with glass.

    Huge thanks to Duncan of Greendolphins Glass for speedily despatching his beautiful Ailsa Craig sun catcher in time for the recipient's birthday. Ailsa was delighted with her gift and it arrived safe and sound, bringing a little bit of Scotland to her home in Harrow. Wx

    Bought for a Christmas gift for someone who lives overseas as a lovely personal reminder of Ayrshire. It’s truly beautiful - will shop here again!

    I highly recommend this shop! Everything was done beautifully - customer service was exemplary. Absolutely love my sun catcher! Thank you so much!
