RED HOT GLASS, Glass artists, David Jackson and Liz Lacey are the designers, makers and owners of Red Hot Glass (est. for 27 years). Along with the combined talents of their team of glassblowers, Pieter Lakay and Mitch Lovkis and the cold working team their creations vary from functional interior artefacts such as chandeliers, lighting, perfume bottles, vases, dishes, bowls, through to sculpture and some of the largest glass installations in Africa.
The Glass We make our own glass from scratch, literally from grains of sand to the final piece of work. Glassblowing takes many years to learn, it is a craft of million subtleties. Free blown Glass We blow glass in what is termed “off hand”. This explains that the technique we use is hand made without moulds and consequently “piece unique”. Each pierce even though the designs are the same in always slightly different. This style of blowing is the oldest and most versatile yet the most difficult to achieve and consequently the most sort after and collectable. Every piece of work is signed and dated by the designer Liz.
