CGS at London Glassblowing Gallery
31st May – 15th June 2019
London Glass Blowing Gallery are hosting an exhibition by CGS members with a challenging theme.
London Glass Blowing asked CGS to invite its members to apply to this imaginative show INSPIRED.
Members were asked for work that has been inspired by an object of some sort. In this case the definition of an object is: ‘A material thing that can be seen and touched but that is not a living animal, plant or person.'
