TEAM

JEFF ZIMMER

Co-Director

Jeff is an Edinburgh-based artist with over 20 years' experience working with imagery on glass. His works are in the collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the European Museum for Modern Glass in Germany, the The Portheimka Museum in Prague, and others.  He won the 2019 British Glass Biennale, and Second Prize in the 2014 Coburg Prize for Contemporary Glass.

Jeff has taught at the Edinburgh College of Art, Pilchuck Glass School (US), North Lands Creative Glass (Scotland), Bild-Werk Frauenau (Germany), Berlin Glas, Urban Glass (Brooklyn), and elsewhere.

He combines techniques of glass painting, laser etching, contemporary lighting, and the transparency of glass to create dynamic scenes that appear to shift, dissolve and transform depending on the position of the viewer.

DAVID MOLA

Co-Director

David Mola was born in Spain in 1971.  His fascination with glass didn't have to come from far: he was born in a glazier's shop, and this material has surrounded him ever since!

For twenty years he has managed his own studio where he works on private and public commissions of architectural glass, as well as doing ongoing research into a variety of glass techniques.

David is the sole creator and designer of his work: It is a delicate labour in which each piece coming from the kiln has the value of a unique work.
