Originally a metalworker, and an electrician at a nuclear power plant, Vince had always wanted to do something more creative, and learnt his new trade at an established stained glass firm in Oxford. His business has been run from the same site on the Triangle since 1992. Perhaps surprisingly, much of his work comes from people walking in off the street, so being in a prominent location on the Triangle is fairly crucial. Tucked away on an industrial estate, he'd never get the same sort of exposure. All too often, development and high costs force out artists and craftsmen that an area like ours is all the richer for having. Vince has two part-time freelancers, Cathy and Antonella, working for him, and also provides work experience for students, who learn the trade by making the simpler items such as mirrors and picture frames, which are for sale at the studio.
