I wish to make beautiful glass. Not ‘chocolate-box’ beauty per-se but the beauty you find in a work whose qualities draw you in and once your there, keep you there.
Such work speaks quietly of the harmony between maker or makers and the medium. It is often the result of a path that involves many failed attempts but results in a piece all the stronger for that, where nothing needs neither added nor taken away.
Graham was born in Edinburgh in 1961 and studied at Edinburgh College of Art from 1979-83, graduating with BA(Hons) in Glass Design.
Graham has an unusual link with the gallery, he was studio assistant at The Glassworks in Edinburgh from 1983 to 1990 which was the hot glass studio of Gallery TEN owner Paul Musgrove, who from time to time now assists in the making of Graham's Waveforms.
