Jon Lewis and his partner Yuki Kokai operate a hot glass studio, blowing vessels and making sculpture and wall pieces which often incorporate wood and metal and shimmering dichroic glass.

Other artists taking part in Glasshaus VI are Chrystalla Achilleos, Teresa Chlapowski, James Lethbridge, Laura McKinley, Caroline Moiret, Carla Sealey, Jessica Townsend  Fiaz Elson, Catherine Hough and members of The London Glassblowing Workshop including Peter Layton, Layne Rowe, Cathryn Shilling & Lois Thompson.  London Glassblowing is a hot glass studio focused on the creation and display of contemporary glass art. The studio has a reputation as one of Europe's leading glassmaking workshops with a particular flair for the use of colour, form and texture.
