    Artist Philip VallentinArtist: Philip Vallentin

    ‘Hey, let’s put some eyes on that thing.’ A statement Philip is often heard to say.

    Philip was well into his fourth decade when he fell into a creative crucible of hot glass. Immediately his skills as a traditional animator came to great use. Decades of doodling cartoons is evident in his propensity to create work of expressive characters. Whether larger blown glass pieces or small lamp worked pieces, the themes and narratives are generally light hearted and charming.

    Having studied animation in Canada, Philip worked internationally for many years. He settled in the UK and ran a boutique animation studio called Espresso Animation in London’s Soho for over twenty years. Presently Philip is teaching traditional 2D animation at the University of Hertfordshire. But in his spare moments, he sneaks into his garden studio to create mad items of glass whimsy.

    Over the years Philip has predominantly exhibited his work at Peter Layton’s London Glassblowing Workshop in Bermondsey but has also shown at The Waterloo Gallery, The Barbican Library Gallery, The Koukan Galley in Muswell Hill, The East Finchley Open and the Belfry Tower in Bruges, Belgium. His characterful pieces have found their way to many happy homes around the world.
