Shakspeare Glass Coast Range. Initially inspired by the Isles of Scilly, these pieces are evocative of the island skylines. We tried to recreate the colours of the islands in an abstract way by using the glass as a canvas and applying bands of colour. These pieces are sandblasted after making to give a matte finish.

What Will says of his work "There is something magical about water, from just wondering why the bath always drains one way to the awesome destruction of the ocean.
I have always loved rock pools; I have albums of photographs taken over the years of different pools in different places. They fascinated me when I was small and they still do.
Now the flow of the tide is becoming an intrinsic part of my work, both in pools and the sea. The reflection of sunlight as the tide pulls back and forth on the plants and creatures in the water is something that has eluded me with a camera or pencils. To me it seems plain to use glass as a medium for this expression. Glass captures the qualities I love about the sea and water in a fluid way as no other can.
