About The Artist

Contemporary Glassware by Allister MalcolmAllister Malcolm has become a renowned craftsman within his field.

He is continuously expanding his portfolio of contemporary glass art with strong designs and an impeccable standard of finish that has created a dedicated following of collectors.

Acquiring the skills to produce handcrafted glass to a professional standard has been a long battle. This journey has taken me over ten years.

I am now just beginning to feel the confidence to push this medium of glass and explore the versatility that it offers.

Hopefully when you view the glass it will convey the enjoyment it has given me to create these works!”

The Collection

Glass art from Allister Malcolm

Africa Range – Aerial shots of Africa taken through different seasons inspired this range of bottles. These bottles are of a heavy weight which adds to the optical quality and gives these creations a real presence.

Cloak Bottles – These pieces are produced over a number of days to create a cloak of glass which can be wrapped around these figurative bottles. No two characters are ever the same.

Contour Range – Oval in their shape these pieces have coloured fluid stripes describing the form whilst contemporary cutting work compliments the look. The cuts are carefully placed in response to the way that the coloured stripes have merged during the hot glass making part of the process. As a result each piece is unique!

Fish Tail Bottles – These playful bottles are designed to look like they are diving in to whichever surface you place them on. The fish tail itself forming the stopper.

Gold Trailing Range – 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.

Mermaid Range – The book “The Sea Lady” by H.G.Wells inspired this heavily patterned range which incorporates sterling silver leaf and layers of coloured glass. A wide range of dishes, platters and bottles are available.
