About

Lulu Harrison is a self-taught glass artist, specialising in glass alchemy. She is in her final year of her MA at Central Saint Martins, studying Material Future. Inspired by ancient glass making processes and techniques, she has been creating unique batch recipes from local and waste materials. With extraction of raw materials becoming a pressing environmental issue, as well as constantly rising transportation costs and emissions, Lulu is interested in finding alternatives to the highly processed and finite materials that are often used in glassmaking. Throughout this process, she has been working alongside glass masters in the UK and Murano, as well as the PEGG (Post Disciplinary & Experimental Glass Group), scholars in glass archaeology and Thames Water. By combining crafts, design and science, Lulu’s work seeks to redefine the meaning of 'luxury', through working with waste materials and local communities.
