Bob Crooks

Bob trained at West Surrey College of Art and Design. He worked at the celebrated First Glass in London before deciding to relocate to Devon in 2003. Bob Crooks is one of Britain’s most highly recognised leading glassmakers, renowned for the high quality, skilfully executed dynamic forms and surfaces. He is continuously thinking of original and challenging ideas. Each piece is designed, handmade and finished by Bob. No moulds are used to create the forms or surfaces achieved. The pieces are inspired by Geometry, Architecture, the natural and man-made worlds we live in as well as the qualities and capabilities of the glass itself.

His work has been exhibited internationally and in noted exhibitions in Italy, China, Scandinavia, Australia and the USA and is included in numerous international collections.
