Siddy Langley

Material: Glass | Location: Devon
Siddy is recognised as one of Britain's finest glassblowers. She embarked on a three-year apprenticeship under Peter Layton at the London Glass Blowing Workshop in 1979, working with him for a further five years before opening her own studio in 1987.

Siddy fashions each piece from molten glass incorporating metals such as gold, silver and tin. Each signed and dated piece is unique. Decoration is applied before the glass is blown, then grows with each piece to form delicate and intricate patterns.

"I have had a love affair with glass for well over thirty years now and still, it shows no signs of abating. It allows me to express myself like no other medium I have ever found. At its best, when one is working, it is like performing an intricate, choreographed dance with the glass. Equal partners, working together, to express a thought or idea." - Siddy Langley
