SAMANTHA SWEET GLASS
Hello, I’m Samantha Sweet, a glassmaker based in North London. I believe that handmade objects add intimate touches to our lives, providing the antidote to mass production by offering an alternative to personalise our homes. If you enjoy knowing the history of the things around you, how they were made, and maybe most importantly why they were made, read on!
Samantha Sweet Glass was born from a passion for working with glass. Central to my work is the making process using traditional skills and quality materials. The pieces tell a story of how they were made and the history of glass making while reflecting modern culture in their shape and pattern. Find out what's currently in my shop here
On my site you will find lead crystal, the orchid of the glass world. Cut crystal sucks in light like no other glass, refracts and reflects it back in technicolour. Soda lime glass of Murano fame comes in the juiciest colour range and is my preferred glass for bead making. Thirdly borosilicate, a tough and versatile glass making it the perfect choice for working with a torch. This glass does the equivalent of 0-60 in 3 seconds without compromising on clarity.
Soon you will also finding lighting, the ultimate tool for creating atmosphere in our spaces. A sprinkle of magic and the sparkle of intrigue are coming together to make the most flexible lighting system I could dream of. Check back soon, it’s coming!
