Bill Swann and Meic Watts are presenting collaborative work as part of this year’s summer show.
Following a career in management ceramics and PR Bill returned to university to complete a MA in Glass Design. An exhibition of Bill’s work was featured to coincide with the opening of the National Glass Museum in Sunderland.

Bill carries out public and private commissions in glass for both internal and external environments and works from his studio in Porthmadog.
Meic was fortunate in being an apprentice to the sculptor Jonah Jones after leaving art college. Jonah introduced him to letter cutting and carving in the local slates of north Wales and various other stones. Meic has worked on public art commissions and residencies for many years.
