Glass Skills - The Unbroken Line
A year of exhibitions that celebrate the glassmaker’s skill

The Contemporary Glass Society highlights 15 exhibitions taking place throughout 2013 at some of the UK’s top galleries. The shows present the ingenuity and sheer talent of today’s glass artists and represent an unbroken line of glass-making skill – taking us from the ancient past, through the creative present and into the future.

The Unbroken Line is part of the CGS Glass Skills project – 12 months of exhibitions, events and workshops that explore the fusion of art and technique. Find out more at www.cgs.org.uk
