Currently completing the final year of his BA(Hons.) in glass at Edinburgh College of Art, Jonathan brings the forms and experiences of his life as an artist blacksmith to glass, incorporating cast, slumped and blown forms into a diverse portfolio. During his third year, Jonathan made a series of pieces revolving around the iconic image of the anvil, including the richly coloured core cast piece above, laden with iron oxide. Yet another piece in the series - a clear glass anvil with a highly polished working face - was exhibited and toured Ireland as part of the RDS National Craft Competition. Keep an eye out for more of Jonathan's work at this year's Glass Degree Show at Edinburgh College of Art.
