"Belle Walker is a glass designer who graduated from the West Surrey Institute of Art and Design with a BA in Glass. During her degree she took two years out to improve upon her technical skills. The first of these she spent assisting in a new glass blowing studio in Bremen, Germany, with glassmaker Michael Kramer. After this she focused her attention on creating original and imaginative glassware using bold colours and eye-catching designs.

Her Creativity as a designer and her skills as a maker have enhanced her reputation as one of the most exciting new glass designers of her time. Her work has been recognised by contemporary galleries, national crafts and homes magazines and ‘Liberty’s of London." resource rostra gallery.
