Glass Skills: Cutting Edge Showcase 3 (exploring gold and silver leaf)

The Contemporary Glass Society is delighted to launch the third Glass Skills Showcase exhibition, this time embued with the exquisite detailing and luxuriant layers of silver and gold leaf. Wrapped and embedded into the glass, these works glow with dazzling combinations of colour and precious overlays that dance and glitter in the light.

This unique online show features work by James Lethbridge, Nancy Sutcliffe, Wendy Newhofer and Kristin McFarlane

The Cutting Edge Showcase series gives an intense burst of art at the vanguard of contemporary glasswork. It’s part of the Glass Skills programme – a whole year of exhibitions that explore the part that glassmakers play in keeping ancient skills alive, and in adapting them to create innovative and original art for today. As well as major CGS-organised events, there are linked exhibitions with some of the most important organisations and galleries in the UK.

This show was launched on 15th August 2013
