1979, United Kingdom
In his own words:
‘I immediately became attracted to working with glass during my time at university, I was drawn to the complex and challenging process of manipulating a material from a solid form to become fluid whilst in the kiln. I aim to capture this fluidity in the final cooling process presenting an organic characteristic to my work . The glass undergoes many transformations whilst firing and the not knowing aspect is part of the attraction.’
Charmer has exhibited extensively throughout the UK and was awarded setting up business grant by the Prince Trust Fund in 2002. In 2004 he received the Cockpit arts Seedbed Award. He has work in the Turner Museum of Glass private collection.
