James Alexander



A Glassblower and Artist who since graduating has worked freelance for a number of studios to develop valuable skills and techniques with the purpose of furthering my career as a glassblower and Artist.

James Alexander is a free hand glass blower and sculptor. He has taken inspiration from the beautiful Cornish landscape from where he grew up and applied it to his work. He uses the glass as a canvas to create abstract sceneries which draw the viewer in to look closer.
