Roger Tye has been making glass since 1976, initially as Master production maker for the studios of Pauline Solven and Charlie Meaker, before setting up his own full time practice in 1989.
He has exhibited and sold his production ranges and sculptural work widely throughout the UK and internationally to 28 countries and is widely regarded as a consummate glassmaker. Blue-chip clients include Shell, British American Tobacco, American Airlines, NSK, Nissan and the Law Society. He has also been commissioned to create important presentation pieces for VIP’s, Heads of State and the Royal Family.
Roger now concentrates on (design award winning) new sculptural works for exhibition and commissioned work for private collectors. His most recent body of work also combines glass with slate and metal and offers wry observations of social events and situations
