It’s All in the Technique
An exhibition by the Contemporary Glass Society
15 January – 13 March
In 2022, the Contemporary Glass Society (CGS) celebrates 25 years since its foundation as the principal promoter and supporter of both glass artists and collectors of contemporary glass in the UK. It now has over 1,000 members both nationally and internationally.
As this will also be the UN’s designated International Year of Glass, CGS will be working with us here at National Glass Centre to open a new exhibition – ‘It’s All in the Technique’. This exhibition is the start of a year-long programme of online and live exhibitions nationwide plus monthly themed events all celebrating 25 Years of CGS.
In this show, CGS are presenting work from artists that demonstrate the very best in the wide range of techniques that they are working in. The selection panel, which included Julia Stephenson from National Glass Centre, had the exciting job of choosing work that showed the range and amazing techniques used in glass making, from engraving to casting, blowing to water jet cutting. The judges were overwhelmed by the diversity and quality of work on display but finally selected fourteen artists who represent the very best of contemporary glass art.
The artists chosen selected are:
Scott Benefield, Katharine Coleman, Vanessa Cutler, Andrea da Ponte, Dominic Fonde, Katherine Huskie, Joshua Kerley, Jessie Lee, Verity Pulford, Cathryn Shilling, Dr Helen Slater Stokes, Nancy Sutcliffe, Ulrike Umlauf-Orrom and Muna Zuberi.
