Pushing the limits of glass

  • • Timothy is following in his glassmaker father’s footsteps
  • • He is a world-leading designer and maker of studio glass
  • • He loves testing the possibilities of glass

Timothy Harris, one of only a few second generation glassmakers, is the eldest son of the late Michael Harris, who was one of the originators of the British studio glass movement. From an early age, Timothy was attracted by the heat, fire and smoke of his father’s studio; by the time he was 13, he would stand on a beer crate to gather glass from the furnace. Today, his work can be found in private collections, galleries, museums and shops around the world. Now one of the UK’s leading glass artists, Timothy has made pieces for several members of the British royal family including HM The Queen. Timothy is fascinated by working with multiple layers of glass and his designs are evocative of the colours, textures and forms found in nature.
