The Art of Glass 7-28 NOVEMBER 2015
Continuing our series of exhibitions this year around Process & Materials, this all-glass exhibition showcases sculpture and vessels made using a variety of techniques by some of the UK’s most talented artists working in this challenging and beautiful medium. Definitely one not to be missed!
For this exhibition David M Flower (formerly of London Glass Blowing) has created a stunning series of blown vessels which have a rich, rusted finish with sweeping, carved lines revealing coloured glass underneath. Each piece is underlit to make the lines of colour ‘sing’.
German-born international glass artist, Heike Brachlow, will be showing a selection of extremely poised, cast-glass sculptures which demonstrate the subtlety of her coloured glass which she creates in her studio at Parndon Mill, Harlow.
Adam Aaronson will be exhibiting a series of beautiful, hand blown glass bowls, together with a selection of serene, frosted glass sculptures. Aaronson specialises in free blown glass sculpture. He experiments with different glass techniques to produce highly finished forms.
Also joining the line-up by special invitation are works in glass by ABU JAFAR and EWA WAWRZYNIAK. Jafar creates stunning fused glass sculptures and wall-hung pieces which demonstrate his painterly background. The layers of hand-painted, fused glass take their inspiration from psychology, philosophy, classical music and day-to-day human existence.
Polish born, Ewa, creates distinctive, kiln-cast and sand-cast glass sculptures, often using sand moulds lined with copper foil. Her work feels intimate and deals with perceptions of the house as a ‘private space’.
