To continue the celebration of this landmark anniversary and to raise awareness of the glory of contemporary glass, a series of linked exhibitions are being held around Great Britain over the next three years. This circular tour will start and end in the South West.

Glorious Glass continues to celebrate 20 years of CGS at The Creative Innovation Centre (CIC) Taunton, which is the first venue where we will be displaying glass art work from artists based in the South West, together with a Glass Forum Day and workshops.

The aim of the “Glorious Glass” events is to demonstrate just how utterly glorious and amazing contemporary glass is so that everyone can appreciate and enjoy its magical colours, textures, use of light and variety of techniques and also discover their own local glass artists.
