This Autumn National Glass Centre is offering a series of lunchtime talks given by staff from the glass and ceramics department of the University of Sunderland, which is based in the centre. These talks relate to exhibitions shown in our Long Gallery. The artworks in these exhibitions showcase the research and professional practice undertaken by our staff in The Institute for International Research in Glass (IIRG) and Ceramics Arts Research Centre University of Sunderland. This is focused on the research and development of creative glass and ceramics at a national and international level. This research involves the creation of new artworks in glass and ceramics, techniques and approaches to creative making, models of practice in terms of methods and content, and contextual and historical information on glass and ceramic. Much of our work is developed from the perspective of creative practitioners.
