Artists featured include David Reekie, from Dickleburgh, who shows his work in Chicago, Hong Kong, France and The Netherlands and most recently at Collect at the Saatchi Galleries, London and Max Lamb and Fiona Wilkes from SALT glass studios, Burnham Thorpe, whose work has been exhibited at the British Glass Biennale, Tate Modern and London Craft Week.

Susan Purser Hope from Cromer, who has been appointed national Chair of CGS as its marks its 20th anniversary in 2017, is also celebrating her 10th anniversary as a glass artist. Much of her work has combined art and science, exploring SEM (scanning electron microscopy) images of the interior of the body. Her new work is influenced by Cromer’s end of the pier show, Great Yarmouth’s Hippodrome and Thursford’s rides and organs.
