Welcome to Samantha Sweet Glassblowing
Surrounded by trees and nestled amidst the bustling city, my studio provides a peaceful and inspiring environment for creativity to flourish. Despite its proximity to East Finchley Underground Station, just a five-minute walk away, my studio feels like a tranquil retreat from the urban noise and chaos. Large windows offer views of the nearby park, providing a perfect combination of natural beauty and urban convenience.
This unique blend of elements creates a truly inspiring atmosphere, making my workspace a sanctuary for both artistic expression and relaxation. If you are interested in to exploring the world of glassmaking, my studio offers a warm and welcoming environment for all.
I fell head over heels for hot glass during a taster session on my BA Hons course. The intense heat and the fiery dance of molten glass captured my heart and I was determined to persevere until the end of the day, even as the queue of hopefuls dwindled from 20 to just four.
After completing my undergraduate degree, I worked in several glass studios and attended classes at Pilchuck and Haystack in the US to hone my technical skills. In 2000, I decided to take my passion for glass to the next level by pursuing an MA at the prestigious Royal College of Art.
