Allister has become a renowned craftsman within his field. He is continuously expanding upon his portfolio of handmade, blown and contemporary glass artwork, welcoming all manor of commissioned work from corporate and private clients. His strong design sense combined with an impeccable standard of finish has created a dedicated collector base. All work is individually signed and dated by the artist.

The Golden Trailing range has become a long standing favourite amongst clients. The colourful vessels are adorned with a glass trail which has been coloured in a way to give the impression that it is actually a gold wire.

“Acquiring the skills to produce handcrafted glass to a professional standard has been a long battle. This journey has taken me twenty years. I now strive to push this medium of glass and explore the versatility that it offers utilising all the skills I have gained over the years. Hopefully when you view the glass gallery it will convey the enjoyment it has given me to create these works!” - Allister Malcolm
