Holmes Glass

Father and Son team of Peter and Andrew Holmes have a combined experience of 76 years in glassmaking, their styles and techniques explore traditional and contemporary glassmaking.
Peter began as an apprentice in glassblowing and traditional paperweight making at the age of 15.
 Peter's reputation is known amongst paperweight collectors for his expertise in abstract paperweight making & designs.
Extending from the paperweight making, his skills embrace ranges 
of bowls and vases through glassblowing.
Andrew became an apprentice with his father some 18 years ago, 
developing his skills into making the full ranges.
Andrew's style has flourished into metal and glass sculptures, 
bespoke pieces for garden commissions, and most recently moving into public art.
As their styles and techniques have expanded over the years, 
Andrew and Peter continue to explore their craft. They find inspiration through the landscape of the Scottish Borders, reflected in their shape and form.
