Nick Orsler

Blown Studio Glass – Dartmouth - Devon

Nick initially trained at Hornsey College of Art in London, and then did a degree in Industrial Design at Leicester.  After various apprenticeships in small studios in England, Nick travelled to parts of Europe, mainly The Black Forest in Bavaria, and parts of Italy, to extend his interests in the art of glassmaking.

On returning to England Nick set up a small studio in London with the support of a Crafts Council award.
Nick has exhibited and sold glass to numerous Crafts Council selected galleries including the Cecilia Coleman Gallery, London, and the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge.

Stockists of Nicks' glass have included Harrods International Glass Department, London, Liberty's One Off Department, London, The Designers Guild – all branches, Next Interiors – all branches.
Nick and his wife Jacky managed to secure a premises suitable for the studio on the Industrial Estate in Dartmouth and a five minute drive to their Gallery in the centre of the town.  The Gallery opened at the beginning of October 2005 and has been well received by both locals and visitors.  Nick is particularly keen to continue with his love of experimenting with colour and form.

Nick`s work is always changing – Experimentation is the key to making unusual pieces – hopefully the relationship with this wholly seductive material will always be highly cherished and the end results worthy of the process.
Since moving to the South West Nick has participated in various exhibitions including The Brownston Gallery in Modbury (Sept 2006) which featured some very large blown Sculptural pieces.

Nick has worked closely with Interior Designers and Architects and welcomes commission work.
