Kalki is an Irish glass artist, designer and maker based in the
Northeast of England. His passion
started when he came across and started working in a small blown glass studio
aged thirteen and where glass immediately made an impression on him.
After finishing school he travelled to America to further his
knowledge of glass and to see and work in several artists’ studios gaining an
understanding of forming glass through different processes and techniques.
Upon returning he enrolled on the BA (Hons) programme in Glass,
Architectural Glass and Ceramics at the University of Sunderland and graduated
in 2007. In 2008 after a year travelling
Australia he returned to the North East where he began working for Jane Charles
Studio Glass in Newcastle and the National Glass Centre in Sunderland. Today he is based in the North East as a
practising glass artist, as well as a glassblower for local studios and artists.
