Philip Baldwin (b. 1947) and Monica Guggisberg (b. 1955)
Philip Baldwin, from the US, and Monica Guggisberg, from Switzerland, have worked together as Baldwin & Guggisberg since 1980 and lived in Wales since 2015. Their distinctive aesthetic combines formal perfection with a rich colour palette and strangely shaped, almost anthropomorphic vessels. These are made out of blown layers of glass, which are then sandblasted or cut through using the battuto technique, to achieve a deeply textured surface suggestive of beaten metal.
