Vintage 60s mid century brutalist art glass vase by designer Frank Thrower for Dartington glass.

Frank Thrower was the chief designer for Dartington Glass from the time it was founded in 1966 until his death in 1987. One of the key objectives of the Dartington Hall Trust in setting up this glass factory was to provide employment for the young people of North Devon, and the town of Torrington was chosen as their glassworks site. Frank Thrower was a protege of Ronald Stennett-Willson who had been Managing Director of J. Wuidart & Co. Ltd, a company importing Scandinavian glass which employed Frank Thrower as a salesman from 1953 to 1960. During this period Frank worked closely with Ronald Stennett-Willson, one of Britain’s greatest glass designers, and saw how Ronald designed glass for Scandinavian glassworks to produce. In the early 1960s Frank took on the post in charge of sales for the Portmeirion Pottery company, and soon led that company to follow the Ronald Stennett-Willson model of importing Scandinavian glass, and getting his own designs made in Sweden to sell in the UK.
