Anthony Scala

Anthony Scala

‘My inspiration is drawn from the optical effects glass and light can induce upon one another, and in turn, how these shifting qualities can manipulate the perceived image of an object. Through them it is possible to create objects in which the laws of light, shadow, and reflection combine in ways only nature can dictate, thereby allowing us a tantalising yet transitory glimpse of refractive creations forever beyond our grasp’.

Bio

Anthony Scala was initially trained as an architectural model maker, Anthony’s work shares a synergy with those aesthetics so prevalent in present day architecture .

In 1999, Anthony Scala became the protege of eminent glass artist Peter Layton. Under his guidance, Anthony became a competent glass blower in his own right. However, it was glass cold working for which he showed a real aptitude.

In 2005 at the age of 27, Anthony won the prestigious ‘Glass Sellers Award’ (other recipients include Alison Kinnard, Colin Reid, Richard Jackson, and Bob Crooks) making him the youngest ever recipient of the Glass Sellers main prize.

Over the years, Anthony’s portfolio of projects has consistently demonstrated meticulous attention to detail, as well as a unique lateral approach.

Anthony has come to be regarded as one of the leading UK practitioners in this specialist field through his use of precise, and innovative techniques. The culmination being elegant creations which both impact and merge with their surroundings.
