James Maskrey In His Own Works

New work by James Maskrey

James Maskrey is a highly skilled and respected artist who works in hot glass.  He is based at National Glass Centre where he works as part of a team teaching hot glass making to BA, MA and PhD students.  James Maskrey also regularly works with artists who would like to explore the potential of including glass within their practice.  Magdalene Odundo is one such artist. James has worked with Magdalene over a period of three years culminating in the exhibition Transition II  featured in our main Gallery space.  Using a Venetian technique called Filigrana the two artists have worked together to perfect the glass unit that the installation is based around. James Maskrey then went on to either make or oversee the production of the one thousand units making up the art-work.

As well as facilitating the work of other artists James Maskrey has achieved a high level of success as an artist in his own right with work included in the collections of the Crafts Council and the Victoria & Albert Museum.  Always beautifully executed Maskrey’s recent work has drawn on his fascination with the Polar explorations of Scott and Shackleton. This exhibition provides the opportunity to enjoy examples of James Maskrey’s most recent work and a retrospective of pieces made over the last 10 years.
