Dan Klein & Alan J Poole – Highlights from the private collection
Erwin Eisch is internationally recognised as one of the key founders of the studio glass movement. Working in the small town of Frauenau in Bavaria, Eisch has used glass as an artistic medium from the late 1950s creating a wide ranging body of work exploring and often contradicting the established qualities of glass and creating objects which express his thoughts, beliefs and views. The exhibition will present work created by Eisch across his career including glass objects, vitreographs (prints from glass) drawing and painting.
