Hand-blown glass sculpture
Benjamin Lintell is a passionate glass artist. He graduated with a BA in Contemporary Craft from Plymouth College of Art in 2017 having already begun to develop a reputation for his work. In the summer of 2016 he spent six weeks working for Jeremy Maxwell Wintrebert in Paris, and in 2017 studied at Pilchuck Glass School under Nancy Callan and Mel Douglas. In 2018 he returned to the USA to work for Kelly Howard and collaborate with Josh Bernbaum as well as being selected to exhibit at Talente in Munich in March of that year.
In 2020 his ‘Sigma’ series of work was selected for the Milano Vetro 35, and he was invited to show his ‘Aegean’ series at the Venice Glass Week. Whilst showing in Venice, Benjamin was invited to join the staff at Wave Murano Glass and he now lives and works on the island of Murano in Venice making his artwork at the glass factory.
A collection of Benjamin’s work is always available to view at the Byre Gallery.
