Arthur Scott

Glass Blower & Fine Metalworker

Arthur Scott is an artist who uses traditional glass blowing and fine metalworking techniques with copper and brass; combing glass and copper to create decorative vessels. Arthur was brought up in Wirksworth and captures the landscape and town in his work.

Arthur went to Sunderland University to study glass and ceramics in 2015; having done fine metalworking in an art foundation, experimented with using both practices to make glass vessels with copper bands that are 360° panorama silhouettes of scenes in the local area. In the merging of the two materials, the glass is blown into the copper band. Being constricted and growing past the edge of the copper, trapping it on the outside.

The copper represents place, and the shape of the piece is the feeling and memory of the place. The panoramas are drawn by hand and from memory.
