Geoff Thwaites is a glass artist based in Cambridge, England. He is an elected Fellow of the Guild of Glass Engravers, one of only 25 people who currently have this status.
Much of his work is done to commission, engraving either on commercial or specially made glass on a scale from goblets, tankards and decanters to doors and windows. Commissions often include lettering but may also incorporate illustrative elements. Colour can be included on flat glass using a collage technique.
In addition, he exhibits widely. For his exhibition pieces, he usually kiln-forms his own glass blanks and uses engraving, deep cutting and carving to create sculptural works.
