Ronald Stennet Wilson was an icon in British twentieth century glass design, bringing a Scandinavian aesthetic with its smooth clean lines to his pieces. He began his career as a glassmaker in the 50s and in 1967 set up his own factory, King’s Lynn Glass in Norfolk (later sold to Wedgwood), producing high quality modern tableware and ornamental glass, all handmade. Many of his staff were from Sweden and he employed Austrian glass-blowers who were highly experienced in blowing very the thin stems that featured in much of range. Winning the Queen’s Award for Industry the celebrated Sheringham, each handmade in various sizes and colours, is now a much loved and sought after piece of mid century modern glass design.
