From a very young age Charles has known of glass as an artistic medium, ever since
his parents (E+M Glass) opened the studio he grew up in, back in 1987. Even with
this familiarity with hot-glass it wasn't until he went to Sunderland University
that he began to experiment and really explore it's properties. Originally studying
Fine Art it later seemed inevitable that he would transfer to the BA Glass and Ceramics course, from which he graduated from with honours in 2010 and was awarded the Charles Bray award for Glass Excellence.
Charles now works as a Glass Artist at The World of Glass, glass museum in St Helens, as well as taking every opportunity he can to explore the country demonstrating the glass blowing skills he has developed over a lifetime and begun to perfect.
