Exclusive Interview With Katie Young, Glass Blower - 1

Exclusive Interview With KT Yun, Glass Artist

Never have I been more excited than when I was put in touch with glass blowing artist, KT Yun. This chance opportunity led to an exclusive interview just for my little old blog :)

KT Yun is one of the talented craftspeople who has created the beautiful pieces of artwork in the new print advertising campaign for KETTLE® Chips which celebrates the care and attention taken to create the nation’s favourite hand cooked crisps.
