Paul Floyd is a designer and maker based at the Ruskin Glass Centre in Stourbridge, producing bespoke work for interior and architectural commissions.
The Studio which was established in 2003 mainly works in glass, designing and making for both residential and commercial commissions. A range of contemporary and traditional techniques are used including stained glass, mosaic, kiln-forming, casting and fused glass. Paul uses these techniques with a foundation of good craftsmanship and works in combination with different materials including wood, metal and ceramics to create the artworks.
The established and experienced workshop also offers a full repair and restoration service of stained glass, leaded lights, doors and windows.
Paul has worked on varied commissions, ranging from stained glass for private clients to bespoke artworks for public art projects. In the past he has designed and made glasswork for the Eden Project in Cornwall and more recently collaborating with an artist to produce a series of wall murals for a public art project in Worcester. Through these and similar projects within the creative practice, Paul has gained and built on his experience with working alongside architects, arts organisations and other designer/makers and artists.
The studio also works with the community, local schools and colleges providing glass workshops, courses, evening classes and creative projects.
