has worked in the field of glass and crystal in England for over
35 years, first as a glass decorator/engraver.
most notable achievements are his wildlife and dog sculptures.
Currently Neil is the only artist in the U.K. (and, we believe,
anywhere!) who can produce accurate, individually sculpted dog
models in a flame from solid rods of glass. These models are then
mounted on a complementary crystal rectangular base with edging.
Limited by this very detailed process to production of 2 sculptures
per day, these true to life designs are instant collectibles.
rendition in crystal of the jaguar was chosen by Jaguar
Car Corporation of Great Britain as their showroom model.
currently sculpts over 90 dog breeds and a wide range of wildlife
animals as well. We will be updating this web site often, but
meanwhile, should you care to request your breed, or a particular
piece of wildlife, just send an email to Helmut@crystalcarousel.com
served his glass apprenticeship with Thomas Webb & Sons, a
highly noted British "blue chip" firm in the glass industry,
established in the 19th century.
