About CGS

Established in 1997 to represent the interests of glassmakers within the national and international community, The Contemporary Glass Society, CGS, now has over 900 members and is continuing to grow significantly.

We are an international, charitable organisation and we are very passionate about glass and the artists working with this amazing medium.

“CGS has introduced many interesting possibilities to me and enabled me to admire and appreciate so much more of what is going on in contemporary glass. Being a member of the organisation is essential to my practice and interests.”

Katharine Coleman, MBE is one of the founding members and a trustee of CGS.
