Ed and Margaret Burke

Ed and Margaret Burke joined forces and created E+M Glass in the mid 1980's. They have been designing and making unique works of art for the table from their studio on the Welsh / English borders since 1988.
 
Ed Burke is a master glassblower. Having discovered glass at the age of eighteen he embarked on a career in the medium. After studying at North Staffordshire Polytechnic, where he obtained a BA Hons. degree in glass design, he went on to work for many established glassmakers. In 1988 he built his own furnace and studio and began producing his unique style of glassware. Specialising in tableware, Ed's interests are in the use of strong colour and shape. His designs range from the manufacture of production ranges to the more exclusive one-off limited editions.

Margaret burke specialises in the cold working of glass. She designs and embellishes a range of plates, bowls and glasses. Primarily inspired by Primitive Art, she has developed the technique of etching through layers of coloured glass to create designs that are both contrasting and tactile. Margaret enjoys working on the functional form, creating ranges of tableware that emphasise the functionality of each piece.

E+M glass, glass that makes you smile!

"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 37 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.
