Thomas Petit is a Derbyshire based artist who specialises in handblown glass. Having initially worked with clay, Thomas was mesmerised by the possibilities of glass and has subsequently never looked back. He draws upon many influences in the creation of glassware, from the broad spectrum of the Arts, his own photography, to everyday objects & experiences.
Thomas’ latest works from the Sea Shore ranges, which are continuing to evolve, were influenced by his childhood outings in East Sussex. “I wanted to try to capture the flint & cobbled beaches of this area in an abstract beachside landscape”.
All his pieces are ground by hand, and each stopper is made for an individual bottle.
