Bob CrooksBorn: 1965
Place of Birth: London
Bob Crooks is one of Britain’s leading glass artists. He has established a strong reputation for his exceptional blown glasswork with sophisticated use of colour and technique. Each piece is handmade and uses a variety of hot and cold working processes.
"For twenty years I have continued my passion for the pursuit of perfection within my work. The endless metamorphic qualities of hot glass, combined with traditional British, Italian and Scandinavian techniques and a 'love affair' with the material have been synthesised into my work."
Public collections include:
The National Museums of Scotland; The Victoria & Albert Museum; Fitzwilliam Collection, Cambridge.
The Scottish Gallery hosted a Bob Crooks exhibition during the Edinburgh International Festival, August 2014.
Crooks will be the subject of a solo exhibition in December 2017.
