Designer and maker Laura Smith explores themes surrounding the elemental life force that is water and draws inspiration from landforms in her work, building layers of texture through precious metals and sandblasting.
Born and raised on the island of Bermuda weather and storms have huge impact on delicate ecosystems.
Collections follow narratives which begin with the life force that is water; with cloud forms, oceans and the impact of storms. With over 10 years of working with glass she has adapted techniques of working with copper, silver and gold to suit these themes within her work.
After graduating from Edinburgh Art College with a degree in Glass she worked in London glass studios developing her craft, cultivating her own aesthetic and approach to glass.
The East London studio showcases her bespoke chandeliers and wall installations and highlights international commissions ranging from private clients, boutique hotels and cruise-liners.
