Bob Leatherbarrow established Leatherbarrow Glass Studio in 1988 and has created original kilnformed glass ever since. Known for his innovative styles, techniques, and designs, Bob has taken an experimental approach to developing unique textures and colour palettes using glass powders. His glass bowls and sculptures explore the subtle hues and delicate beauty of naturally occurring textures and encourage the viewer to ponder their origin. In 2008 Bob moved to Salt Spring Island, British Columbia, where he continues to make glass art and write e-books on his signature techniques. Bob has also been a popular instructor on both the national and international kilnformed glass scenes and has recently shared many of his techniques through the comprehensive AAE video class program.

Projects Made: Four Display Stands for Glass
     One of the greatest challenges in completing a glass art project is to display it in the best possible way. The display should keep the focus on the glass and be as unobtrusive as possible. It has to be versatile so that it can work for any size or shape of work and apply to both tables and plinths or for mounting on walls. From a practical viewpoint it has to be easy to make using readily available materials and tools, and be very economical to make. This video outlines my creative solutions for making dynamic stands and wall mounts. Using the 4 approaches to making stands outlined in this video I have been able to fulfill all of these requirements for ALL of my sculptures, bowls and wall pieces. Most importantly I now make artwork that accomplishes my vision knowing that I will be able to make the appropriate stand that best displays the finished piece. - B. Leatherbarrow
