Rob Raeside assembles his forms and shapes in configurations that are best viewed in groupings where the repeated elements, colours and contours create beautiful patterns and arrangements.

Rob Raeside’s work exemplifies making the complex appear simple. His earliest exposure to glass was observing the refined shapes of mid-century Scandinavian designs from Kosta Boda and Orrefers. Raeside continues to draw inspiration from classic forms, spheres, cylinders and cones. He has an inherent knowledge of his material and through refined technique skillfully manipulates glass to create playful pieces and elegant objects. His extensive colour palate favours both subdued shades and lustrous hues.
