"Using skills and knowledge gained over almost twenty years, Notarianni Glass uses innovative glass techniques to manipulate molten glass into forms, which are then taken through various skilled ‘cold’ processes, including etched textures, carving, grinding and polishing. "
Internationally acclaimed, Notarianni Glass, is the name under which an inspiring collaboration of unique hand-blown glass is made. Specialising in contemporary glass sculpture, bespoke artwork and feature panels, these award-winning works of art are created by the highly sought-after and talented duo Charlie Macpherson and Amanda Notarianni. This husband and wife team has a passion for design excellence and an exceptional commitment to creating unique masterpieces.
We both graduated with a degree in 3D Design from Sunderland University, and took the traditional route into glass making, working in studios to gain the relevant skills and knowledge required to become Master Glass blowers.
Using skills and knowledge gained over almost twenty years, Notarianni glass now offers a bespoke service, using innovative glass techniques to manipulate molten glass into forms, which are then taken through various skilled ‘cold’ processes, including etched textures, carving, grinding and polishing. Their elegant, timeless pieces are hand-crafted with dedication for private clients, corporations, museums and galleries. We exhibit with some of the leading glass galleries and work to commission with art consultants internationally.
We produce highly-prized and collectible pieces which are proving to be a solid investment in the long term as these contemporary pieces become the antiques of the future. They have won numerous awards including the NESTA Fellowship and the Princes Trust Highly Commended Business Award. The increasing demand for Notarianni Glass led to a need for larger premises and following a major relocation from Cheshire we set up a new studio in 2015 The Engine Shed, in Dorchester. This move has enabled us to focus more on sculptural work and larger commissions for which we have developed a market-leading reputation for excellence. It has also allowed us the space and freedom to draw upon our teaching and lecturing experience acquired from Manchester Metropolitan University and Stoke University. We run regular workshops in sand casting and glass blowing techniques, and pass on the skill and beauty of this wonderful craft.
