Alice Heaton



I am a Cheshire based designer working primarily with hot glass. Taking inspiration from nature I produce richly colourful and dynamic individual blown sculptural pieces. I gained a First Class Hons in Design Crafts in 2016 at De Montfort University.

Inspiration is taken from organic forms in the natural world with a focus on movement allowing me to create dynamic forms. Colour is applied ‘in the moment’ as with a painters brush so it’s bright and fun, this links to the prints I also develop.

 I was in selected in March 2017 to take part in ‘Gather Up’ run by The Bandits of Glass a project aimed at emerging designers. I have participated in a project with writer Melody Vaughan and five other makers to produce work in response to craft tools, this culminated in exhibitions in London and Somerset.
