The Unique Glass

Isle of Wight Studio Glass

Located along the famed and beautiful Undercliff on the south facing coast of the Isle of Wight. One-off designs, collections and corporate gifts are produced and designed at the studio by Master Glassmaker, Timothy Harris.

Founded in 1973 by his father, Michael Harris, Isle of Wight Studio Glass is internationally recognised for the highly imaginative and original approach used in developing this magical material. Outstanding skills in design and exploring new techniques in manufacturing have enabled Isle of Wight Studio Glass to become one of Britain’s leading glass studios.

Many of the richly coloured designs have won major awards and some are produced using 22ct Gold and Sterling silver leaf.
Today the company continues to prosper under the direction of the Harris family. In addition to the Isle of Wight Studio Glass Collections and Limited Editions, one-off pieces are created using techniques such as `Graal' & multi-layered casing, which demand tremendous artistic and technical skill to achieve. Isle of Wight Studio Glass is exported worldwide and can be found in many private and public collections.

Brian Marriott…the heart of the matter

In the early 70’s my design studio was fortunate to be commissioned to create a new identity and marketing material for Michael Harris to embrace the international objectives of Isle of Wight Studio Glass. During that time I watched and admired the creative skills of the glassmakers and knew that ‘one-day’ somehow I would be involved again.

Those graphics are now embedded into the history of this highly successful glass studio which went onto create glass designs that are admired and collected worldwide.
