Louise graduated in Design at Goldsmiths College London before studying at the International Glass Centre. She has been working with Colin Hawkins collaboratively since 1998. Their combined training and experience are extensive and diverse and both have been involved in glass making for over 20 years. They gained much of their understanding of the medium of glass early in their careers whilst working alongside some of the British Glassmaking industry’s traditional and contemporary artisans. From their glass-blowing studio at The New Brewery Arts Centre in the Cotswolds Louise uses a combination of traditional glassblowing techniques and contemporary craft skills to develop her work which is held in both public and private collections worldwide. She has worked on many commissions and with Colin exhibits their One-off pieces and Studio ranges in selected galleries and at their studio where visitors are welcome to watch the glass being made.
