New Glass – Ancient Skill, Contemporary Artform

This exhibition was held Jan 31st to May 12th 2013

We are showing an exhibition that launched Glass Skills 2013 earlier this year at Blackwell in Cumbria. The show revealed something of the hidden processes that underpin the glassmaker’s art. Drawings, models and photographic documentation of processes were presented alongside the work. The show was a collaboration between the Lakeland Arts Trust and the CGS.

Pieces were shown in Blackwell’s exhibition galleries, but also throughout the house itself, blending the craftsmanship of the past with the artistry of the present.

The 31 artists selected for the show were Margaret Alston, Linda Banks, Scott Benefield, Philippa Beveridge, Effie Burns, Keith Cummings, Michelle-Mary Dawson, Carrie Fertig, Heather Gillespie, Gillies Jones, Emilie Haman (France), Max Jacquard, Angela Jarman, June Kingsbury, Alison Lowry, James Maskrey, Caroline McGuigan, Rosa Nguyen, Rachel O’Dell, Lisa Pettibone, Georgia Redpath, Michael Ruh, Boris Shpeizman, Andrea Spencer, Nancy Sutcliffe, Ayako Tani, Angela Thwaites, Deborah Timperley, Rowan van der Holt, Andrea Walsh and Clare Wilson.
