Hi - my name is Sandra and I would like to introduce you to
Sandra Young Glass Sculptures
Based near Devizes in Wiltshire, I have been creating
glass sculptures for over 30 years. I specialize in
large scale, finely detailed glasswork based around
the central theme of dragons, but I also create
jewellery and miniatures.
This site now has some fantastic
3D views of the sculptures.
See 3D in menu above or click icons below.
Just a few pointers for using the site:
Use the mouse cursor as you would your finger, left
click & hold then drag/fling or use scrollbars.
Mousewheel to zoom.

Cat with Mouse on Tail!
Inspired by the wonder
of nature I try to reflect
this in my creations
which I have developed over
the past 30 years. My work
has grown towards the magical
world of myth, dragons being
the central theme.
I have 30 years of lampworking
borosilicate glass, yet still
have many more ideas I wish
If given a challenge I love to
design & produce a piece as
detailed as I can. This has led
to the development of my own
techniques to master the
problems of working such
large glass sculptures.
It's not normally considered
to be possible to create
sculptures like this but that's
exactly what I specialize in!
Small Wall Hanging Dragon
Many years experience means
that I can work to an unusually
large size with very fine
detailing but this 'fine-ness'
is also applied to the miniatures
& jewellery that I create.
Another area of my work I have been developing is that of my Celtic
inspired Neck Torcs. These include dragon-shapes
Leaf Torc and Clear Dragon Torc
and torcs based on natural forms, including the Leaf Torc
as well as more abstract sinuous forms.
Multi Colour Torcs
Every sculpture is handcrafted in my studio by heating glass
rods which are then shaped using carbon hand tools, knives
and tweezers to create the definition and fine detail that
is my speciality.
This is very intensive work and a lot of time is necessary
(in particular) for the larger sculptures.
No two sculptures are the same and each one is truly unique!
Each sculpture is then hand painted where necessary and
fired in a kiln.
Dragon in Amethyst - approx 60 cm tall
Red Kite - approx 28 cm across
It is possible to win my Leafy Seadragon which I created
for the Marine Conservation Calendar 2015.

On purchasing one of these calendars you will be entered
into a draw each month to get the chance of winning the
sculpture pictured for that month.

I was recently commissioned to make an Autumn Leaf Torc
and Autumn Leaf Butterfly Hairclips for a wedding this
Autumn, pictures of which I will post here and on facebook
after the wedding.
In 2012 I won the Peoples Prize in the
Contemporary Glass Society’s ‘Medallions’ exhibition.
I have been running 1-1 classes in the summer for the past 4 years
and several of my students have come back year on year.
Galleries such as Bluestone Gallery in Devizes and The Henge Shop in
Avebury currently stock my pieces and this is an area I'm going to
Some of my work can be viewed here and if you have any queries please
do not hesitate to contact me.
To view lots more pieces of my work please come and visit me at one of
the Exhibitions I will be attending in 2016.
