Artist Talks Programme

Artist Talks Programme - Kevin Petrie

Venue: Lecture Theatre 009, the Prospect Building, St Peter's Campus (2 minutes walk from National Glass Centre)

4pm Kevin Petrie

Kevin Petrie is Professor of Glass and Ceramics and leads the academic team in Arts at the University of Sunderland. He studied BA (Hons) Illustration at the University of Westminster (1993) and MA Ceramics and Glass (1995) at the Royal College of Art. He holds a Ph.D. ‘Water-based ceramic transfer printing’ from the Centre for Fine Print Research, University of the West of England, Bristol (1999).  He is known for blending printmaking and glass/ceramics for creative use. This includes the development of new processes and the dissemination of new practice internationally. He has written two books on the subject – ‘Glass and Print’ and ‘Ceramic Transfer Printing’ - and published a number of articles in key journals. He is currently editing a new book, ‘The Ceramics Reader’ with Andrew Livingstone to be published by Bloomsbury later this year. Kevin has been invited to teach and lecture in Australia, Hong Kong, China, Thailand, Denmark, USA, Germany and Canada. This talk will give an overview of Kevin’s student work, later artwork and academic career.

5pm Mark Angus

Mark Angus works in Great Britain, Germany and Austria. He develops his designs in dialogue with his clients, with parishes and users of buildings and spaces. He works in his own workshop with mouth blown flashed glass, leaded or laminated as required, and uses the expressive potentials of acid etching, glass painting, and silver staining, to realise his ideas in glass. Larger projects are executed in collaboration with specialised companies. Since 1978 Mark Angus has created more than 300 windows for churches and cathedrals as well as for other public and private spaces. Important examples include complete schemes from recent years for Oundle School, Spinkhill Parish Church, Berkhampstead School, and Perth Baptist church (all UK), and Breitenberg Parish Church in Germany, and substantial window commissions for the cathedrals of Durham and Guildford (UK). Present work interests includes exhibition panels and paintings, painted glass vases and blown forms, figurative glass wall lamps, and water cut glass figures. Predominant are the human figure, dialogue and interaction, and the human self in space. Mark will also be offering a glass painting workshop earlier in the day. www.markangus.com
