New show bowls us over with precious vessels
Iridescence, sweets, sunsets and koi carp – these are just some of the surprising inspirations behind 48 stunning glass vessels, now on show in a virtual exhibition.
The work in the Contemporary Glass Society’s Bowled Over online show is an exquisite example of how individual artists bring their unique creativity to a simple form – in this case, a series of bowls, platters and dishes. The 48 works, selected by the jury from a huge number of entries, also reflect the fascinating range of techniques used by today’s skilled glassmakers.
Many of the works are for sale and the artists can be contacted through the Contemporary Glass Society’s member directory at www.cgs.org.uk/members
The exhibition leads into the Contemporary Glass Society’s Glass Skills 2013 – a whole year of exhibitions to celebrate the glassmaker’s art.
This show was launched on December 4th 2012
