My Name is Mark Laird and I run and own Hazelhouse Jewellery. I’m based in the North West corner of Surrey, on the Surrey, Hampshire, Berkshire county borders. I have a small studio, with three kilns, that allows me to be creative, as well as having the space to run workshops on fused glass, lampworked glass, and jewellery.
I started making jewellery 14 years ago, and then in 2018 took the decision to leave my full time employment to concentrate on glass full time.
I have found that when people visit me for workshops they are able to relax, unwind and explore their creative side. Given similar sets of materials I have been amazed at the different designs that people create.
