Don’t miss our free CGS talk with renowned glassmaker Peter Layton tonight at 7.30pm.

The Contemporary Glass Society is hosting a Free Zoom talk tonight with renowned glassmaker Peter Layton tonight at 7.30pm.

“Reflections – the Journey of a Lifetime”- A talk by Peter Layton on Wednesday, 19th January at 7.30pm

Peter Layton was one of the founders of the Contemporary Glass Society and has continued to actively support it over the years. His talk will cover the development of his work and his promotion of contemporary glass artists through his gallery, London Glassblowing.

“Set up by Peter Layton, a practicing potter, in 1975, London Glassblowing has become one of Europe’s leading creative hubs. His pioneering vision in creating a workshop that would experiment with hot glass in an organic fashion has helped to establish glass as an exciting medium for individual artistic expression.”
Shital Pattani – former Chair of CGS.

“It has never been easy to make glass. To succeed in running a glassblowing studio for decades in London where premises and costs are prohibitive, is little short of a miracle. Fewer glassblowing studios survive in Britain today than 25 years ago. Peter Layton and London Glassblowing’s work, which is recognised for its striking colour and distinctive shapes, continues to be much sought after and admired.”
Katharine Coleman MBE

“The amazing news is that Peter Layton is still here, taking risks and driving London Glassblowing with the same verve and enthusiasm as ever. He continues to inspire his colleagues and make fabulous coloured glass, and all this at an age that would find others reaching for their Zimmer frames.”
Andy McConnell – Author and Glass Expert.

The Annual Ravenscroft Lecture
Wednesday 26th January 2022
Middle Temple Hall, Middle Temple Lane, London EC4 9AT

The Master, Wardens and Court
look forward to welcoming you and your guests to
the 2022 Ravenscroft Lecture at Middle Temple Hall
‘The Glass Age’
The UN International Year of Glass 2022 arose from a suggestion initiated in the USA that we currently are in ‘the Glass Age’.

A sound case had to be submitted to the United Nations and this had to demonstrate how ‘Glass’ conforms to the 2030 UN Humanitarian Agenda.

My talk will be based on some of the arguments put forward and I will aim to convince you, the audience of the same premise. We will look at glass products in relation to sustainability and a low carbon footprint; their role in energy conservation and generation; and the benefits they bring to medicine, communications, and the generation of clean water.

Finally, we shall consider the social aspects of glass: in Art; Museums; and Gender Equality.Professor John Parker

Emeritus Professor Parker joined the University of Cambridge in 1964; he achieved a first-class MA in Natural Sciences, a PhD and for good measure added 2 years post-doctoral experience. He next moved to the department of Glass Technology at the University of Sheffield (1971-2009). His interests ranged from optical fibres, dental cements, defects in glass making to glass structure and optical absorption. Although now formally retired he still teaches in Sheffield and remains heavily involved in the Society of Glass Technology, as an Honorary Fellow. He is also an honorary member of the Deutsches Glastechnische Gesellshaft. For 21 years he was secretary of the International Commission on Glass Coordinating Technical Committee and still assists with their Winter (China) and Summer (France) Schools; he has received the ICG Turner Award and the ICG President’s Award. Recently he has had a major role in organising the 2022 UN International Year of Glass. He has published 200 books, technical articles, and reviews. As Curator of the Turner Museum of Glass, he frequently talks on the collection

 CGS is delighted to be working with the New Ashgate Gallery in our 25th Anniversary Year. In this show we are looking for work from artists that show quality and the beauty of glass.
Theme:
All our lives have been turned upside down since March, 2020.  We have all experienced highs and lows, fear and boredom, illness and isolation.  Through it all, acting as a solace for many of us, has been the sanctuary of our work and the beauty of the material that we work with.

We invite you to step back from the sadness of the pandemic and to embrace the joy of life as we know it now.  We ask you to reflect upon the glorious and mysterious properties of glass – its transparency, its uniqueness, the variety of techniques it offers, its ability to reflect back at us – and to express joyful reflections on life and glass!

The selection:

The selection will take place in January 2022 by a panel including Outi Remes from the Gallery, a CGS Board member and an independent artist tbc.

Criteria:

One piece of work can be submitted, or a group of small pieces that does not exceed the dimensions. You can send up to 3 images of the piece, with at least one showing the whole piece.

We welcome wall pieces as well as plinth based work.
