National Glass Centre was recently involved with a project with Mortimer Community College in South Shields. NGC worked with a small group of students on the design of a large glass mural for the foyer of the recently refurbished school.
NGC worked closely with the art teacher & Carillion the school’s developer to produce a work (2.1 x1.1m and 110kg) which, when installed, will grace the foyer & reception area of the school.
The glass mural, made from 32 individual fused panels, was unveiled by David Miliband, the Foreign Secretary, on 19 March 2010.
The NGC studio team is actively seeking more projects of this calibre as they offer young people the chance to work with artists, expand their knowledge of glass making processes, and with suitably visionary clients, to produce high quality glass works for public spaces.
