The photographs that Henri Cartier-Bresson took of Matisse in his seventies, working in his studio, also captured many of the objects that the artist had collected over the decades. Some of these objects appear many times in his work and he wrote of them ‘Objects which have been of use to me nearly all my life’

In May 2019 London Glassblowing will be hosting Inspired, a juried exhibition of work by members of the Contemporary Glass Society. Participants will create a work of art in glass inspired by an object.

For this exhibition the judges will be looking for new and original pieces and not just copies of the chosen object.

Selected artworks will be displayed alongside a representation of the tangible object that inspired the piece.


Devon Guild have been funded by Art Council England to support older artists/ makers over the age of 70. We are able to commission 5 older professional artists/ makers and show the work in an exhibition at our gallery in the autumn of 2019. All the information your members require is in the attached document.
