Rob Hayley is fascinated by glass, In the early 1970’s it was the use of leadlight glass in architecture that attracted him. Then in 1995 he resigned as a school teacher to pursue my love of all things glass as a full time occupation. “So far it’s been an interesting journey, but my leadlight & restoration work has lead me to the amazing world of warm glass”. Warm Glass refers to glass fired, made, altered, in a glass kiln,This has inspired me because of the almost limitless possibilities of working in three dimensional glass.
