Designed and crafted by Laura Smith, collections are handblown and combined with different metals creating distinctive patinas. Designer Laura Smith has shaped a signature style that uses metals in glass with a contemporary approach. Laura’s aesthetic often draws upon her island home, Bermuda, as a source of inspiration of vibrant colours and light. Her London based design studio draws upon the interaction between the man made & nature.
Laura Smith is a London based glass artist from the island of Bermuda. With 10 years experience making glass and setting up her practice in 2014, Laura’s glasswork uses her extensive skills in hot glass to capture the incandescent qualities of glass combined with precious metals. Laura’s work begins with looking at a simple object that has been absorbed into its environment. Inspired by underwater habitats of her island roots and objects absorbed into the underwater landscape, the collections combine the influence of the underwater habitat of Bermuda and how an object evolves and grows into its environment.
