Allister Malcolm is an award-winning glass artist currently based in Wordsley, near Dudley in the West Midlands. He graduated from the University of Wolverhampton in 1997 with a BA in Glass with Sculpture and has subsequently taught and instructed glass-making at various levels. He led masterclasses at the 2012, 2010 and 2008 International Festival of Glass, Stourbridge.

Allister uses traditional glassmaking techniques to create handmade, blown and contemporary glass artworks in a variety of forms. In 2015 he undertook a collaborative residency with Helen Millard at the Corning Museum of Glass, New York. This follows numerous glass artist residencies throughout his career which also includes Broadfield House from 2008 to 2015, which now houses Allister’s work in its permanent collection. Allister’s inspiration comes from many different sources, such as local glassmaking history and patterns from the Art Deco Period.

His renowned and highly collectible ‘Mermaid’ range is inspired by The Sea Lady by HG Wells, a story in which a mermaid lures a gentleman away from his life on land. Other career highlights include participating in the world’s longest glassmaking demonstration in 2012, surviving over 26 hours of non-stop glass blowing and raising awareness for the British Glass Foundation, of which Allister is a trustee. Represented both in the UK and abroad, Allister has built a dedicated collector base around the world. All work is individually signed and dated by the artist himself. All of Allister’s ranges and more are available at both Gallery in the Lanes, and our sister gallery Riverside Art & Glass in Wroxham.
