Scott Benefield - Glass Artist
Scott Benefield and Andrea Spence's work is inspired by decorative glassblowing techniques first used in 16th C. Venice that are married to a contemporary sensibility of form and function. The production line is built around the idea that beautiful, handmade objects can have a place on the everyday table.
Most of the range consists of containers that have some pouring function—jugs, cruets, decanters, etc.—as well as a selection of bowls and vases.
Andrea received her degree in glass from Edinburgh College of Art and Scott has an MA from Ohio State University. Scott is also a Fulbright scholar (studying glass in Sweden), a Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust recipient and was awarded the Rosemary James Bursary by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland in 2015 for his work in glass.
