Gregg Anston - Race

handmade kiln formed art glass is designed and created by leading Cornish glass artist Gregg Anston-Race, whose work has inspired many other artists working in fused glass.

 

The handmade glass that Gregg produces at the Craft Fusion studio echo’s the rich colours of his native Cornish home and glistens with the clear light that has always drawn artist to this part of the country.  Gregg also incorporates in some of his work the natural minerals that are formed deep in the ground in Cornwall which helped to create its rich mining history.

 

Gregg is always experimenting with new techniques and looking to invoke new ways of working with the glass, achieving effects that are sometimes unique to his work, e.g. the beautiful iridescences that is found in some of his glass with mineral inclusions, this is formed by a process known only to Gregg and was inspired by the lovely colours found in the copper ore mineral Bornite also known as Peacock ore.
