Current Exhibition

'Glass Inspired by Great Artists'- AN OPEN SHOW

35 glass artists were selected, CGS members and also non-members.

We asked UK glass artists and International artists to answer the subject of whether there is/was a famous artist who is an inspiration to them and who inspired their work?

Work which displayed a figurative, literal or thematic inspiration of a particular artist’s work on their own.

We even had artists from Japan, Costa Rica, The UK, China, Denmark, Switzerland, Bulgaria, and Ireland taking part and sharing their work with us.

Soft crocodiles, delicately painted layers, exquisite engraving, sharp, angular or delicate casting, intricate stained glass, shapely blown forms- a true wealth of techniques and creative ideas explodes here.
Each artist has been inspired by a famous artist and their ideas have been replicated, diluted, pulled apart and recreated within their own work.

As with all CGS online gallery shows, this was a juried show. Works are selected on the merit of both the work, and also photography.
