Glasstorm has now become one of Britain's most exciting hot glass studios with works being showcased in museums, galleries and private/public collections as well being recently listed as one of the top 100 artists by the prestigious New Glass Review30 determined by Tina Oldknow Curator of Modern Glass, Corning Museum of Glass, USA and panel of distinguished jurors.

Published by Neues Glas, Germany 2009.

The studio has been established by the creative duo Brodie Nairn & Nichola Burns. Both have firmly established themselves within the glass art scene in Italy, Switzerland, Germany and The Netherlands.

Returning back to Scotland in 2005 they created their new glass studio and gallery in the beautiful town of Tain in the Highlands of Scotland.

Using their knowledge of Scandinavian and Italian glass making techniques to great effect Brodie and Nichola create their own individual unique art glass, as well as collaborating to create the distinctive GLASSTORM range of functional glass, commissions, glass consultation and public art works.

After many years of successful running, they are once again offering the public the chance to experience Glass blowing or making glass jewellery for themselves.
