During weekdays, our dedicated team of three staff, led by master glassblower Eddie King, make glass the traditional way, by hand, either working with Adam in a team, or making some of the pieces designed by Adam.
Eddie started glassblowing as an apprentice at Whitefriars nearly 50 years ago. He is a very experienced and skilled maker and has also worked for Wedgwood Glass, Langham Glass and Edinburgh Crystal during his long career.
Gabi Ignacio-Madrid came to work with Adam in London in 2011. He grew up in Majorca where his father has been a glass artist for many years. Gabi and his partner now live in Surrey with their baby daughter.
Will Rapley joined the team in June 2016 as a novice and in a short space of time has developed a wide range of skills. He works with the team for three days during the week, and at weekends, assists Adam with his students during his half-day weekend glass courses.
