Every aspect of Stewart Hearn’s work demands high standards of technical skill and design – where traditional skills interpret contemporary visions. Hearn pushes his craft and skills harder and higher with every piece he makes. His passion is to always make the next piece better than the last, not forgetting the integrity of the design of the pieces and their composition as a whole. A further challenge is simultaneously dealing with the heat versus the weight of the glass on the iron. Creating his pieces involves speed of thought in making and creative decision, being at one with the material, and using his skills and knowledge gained over his 30 years of dedication to the craft.
