Description Build 001 is a sculpture created in free blown glass with 3 D printed ceramic base and brass details. It is part of the Taskmaster Burst series of sculptural works inspired by industrial landscapes and chimney stacks. An exciting collaboration between glass artist Liam Reeves & interdisciplinary designer Charles Stern, mixing traditional glass-making techniques with 3D-printed ceramics.

Liam Reeves has been making glass professionally since 1998 when he graduated from Middlesex University with a BA (Hons) in three-dimensional design. During this time he honed his skills whilst working in the glass industry for some of the best glassmakers in the UK. He is currently hot-glass technician at the prestigious Royal College of Art in London.

In 2009 Liam studied for an MA at the RCA in order to explore the creative possibilities of the medium of glassblowing. A large part of these studies took the form of an investigation into ways in which the historical techniques that he found so inspiring could be put into a contemporary context. He has demonstrated these techniques widely for public events, Universities and museums including the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.

Charles Stern worked at Anthony Stern Glass in Battersea before undergoing two years of factory glassblowing training at the Kosta Glass School in Småland, Sweden’s glass making region. In 2010 he graduated with an MFA in Glass from Konstfack, University College for Art, Craft and Design Stockholm. He now runs WorkshopStern - an interdisciplinary studio that combines glass and ceramic design, teaching and research.

His work is concerned with materiality and how that term survives in response to digital media. Since 2010 his work has been executed within the context of artistic research and has been supported by institutions in Sweden and abroad. His clients and employers have included Konstfack, University College for Art, Craft and Design, The Royal Institute of Art Stockholm, The Glass Factory Boda and Beckmans College of Design. Support for projects has been furnished by The Swedish Arts Grants committee, The Anglo Swedish Society, Corning Museum of Glass and The City of Stockholm’s Innovativ Kultur Fund.
