BIOGRAPHY
In 1998 Max Jacquard co- founded the artists group, New London Glass and has been pivotal in the organisation of site specific exhibitions in London such as 'Sub Urban Glass' at Gloucester Road Underground Station and 'Transfuse' at The Great Eastern Hotel. In Liverpool Street. Jacquard trained briefly as a furniture designer before switching to the relative freedom of ceramics and glass on the course at High Wycombe liberally run in the late eighties by Sam Herman. After a brief stint as artist in residence and an apprenticeship making optical glass trophies Max returned to London and established his own studios in Brixton and Battersea.

The exhibition 'Solid Air' at the Crafts Council in 2002 marked a turning point in his career where he worked with sound and light along with 3 life-size hanging glass figures to create a challenging and moving sensory experience. Since then the V&A Museum and The Shipley Museum of Applied Arts as well as the MAVA Museum in Alcorcon, Madrid, have acquired his work for their collections.
