An Exploration of work in glass by six British artists
This exhibition presents work by six of this country’s leading artists who create art-work using glass. Creativity, craftsmanship, expression and experimentation have always been fundamental qualities embraced by artists working in glass, but the way they are used has changed significantly over the last twenty years. Here, the traditional beautiful object on a plinth has given way to works that may use glass as part of a process working towards a finished piece that does not include the physical object. Illuminated glass may sound traditional but it takes on new meaning when used to express contemporary themes and light, transience and motion are themes linked to glass that when captured by the artist become beautifully mesmerising.
