“Acquiring the skills to produce handcrafted glass to a professional standard has been a long battle. This journey has taken me twenty years. I now strive to push this medium of glass and explore the versatility that it offers utilising all the skills I have gained over the years. Hopefully when you view the glass gallery it will convey the enjoyment it has given me to create these works!” quote by Allister Malcolm

The British Glass Foundation (BGF) is a charity that was created in response to the venerable but ageing Broadfield House Glass Museum in Kingswinford being deemed no longer fit for purpose as the showcase of the Stourbridge Glass collection. It was felt imperative that this internationally renowned assemblage of some of the finest glass ever made should retain its integrity and provenance in a new and permanent home.
