  Selected Makers

Allan Punton

I design and craft individual artworks to create contemporary pieces. My studio is located in East Devon. I am fascinated by the way translucent glass interacts with light to create ever changing tones of colour intensity in the compositions that I form. Most of my work is abstract in character.

I work on private client commissions endeavouring to create pieces that provide continual interest and engagement. Commissions can involve a range of modern and traditional techniques including cold cut glass, fusing and kiln-forming.

Materials used...

I work primarily with Italian and French transparent smalti, and Dalle de verre from the USA and France. I use a traditional hammer and hardie to cold cut the glass to shape. I select individual pieces of wood as substrata for each artwork. I form each composition to be sympathetic to the grain and form of the wood substrate.

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 2 days we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
