We (Gillian Hamilton and Sean Taylor) formed Hamilton Taylor Ltd in early 2007. At that time, we were working mostly in Scottish hardwoods, with glass added as an accent material. Since then, more and more of our work has been in glass, until in early 2010 we decided to do away with the woodworking altogether, and convert the workshop into a glass studio. This is where Gillian makes all her kilnformed glass work, and Sean does his lampworking.

We also retail lampworking glass, tools and equipment through our other website, Off-Mandrel.com.

    Great website – love the piccies of the glass – although I did used to like your wood….as it were! Didn’t realise you’d stopped it altogether. Love the cake plates – will be putting in an Xmas order!

    You say you have an online shop, can’t find the link to that on your website.

    Ohh I’ll be looking out for it to – love the tea lights and the cake plates!

    Nice pictures of the studio! I’ll have to think up a wish list of artists I’d love to have lessons with!

    Just wanted to say thank for a wonderful day on Saturday at the metal casting workshop. It was both instructional and fun. You really do learn enough to go home and start casting your own wonderful creations and I’m sure you can all guess what I want from Santa!

    Many thanks

    Hi I was given you web sight info from a lamp bead lady in Devon.
    I am interested in Marbles but as your on line shop seems to be devoid of any price list of indervidual Marbles I have sort of come to a dead end.

    Over to you. Best regards Ken

      Hi Ken,
      Yes, the site is a work in progress, but hopefully we will be able to get some products up for sale early in the new year. Meanwhile, thank you for your interest!

    You make some wonderful glass marbles

  • Greetings from the U.S. My family are glassblowers and we are visiting Scotland in the Fall. We were looking to make contacts in Scotland before we arrived.
    We are mainly lampworkers but also have a small furnace studio.
    Your work and the studio are outstanding. Hoping to have some folks to lift a pint with when we arrive.
