This exhibition explores the work of leading glass artists in Britain today.

#ArtofGlassExhibition 

Over the last 50 years, Britain has had a significant impact on how glass is perceived as an art form. Both national and international artists have based themselves here, drawn to the teaching and world-renowned facilities the UK offers.

Presented in partnership with The National Centre for Craft & Design, this exhibition examines the diverse work of established and emerging glass artists working in Britain today.

Explore how they are embracing the medium of glass in new and exciting ways, pushing the boundaries of techniques and challenging the perception of glass as merely a material for creating functional objects.

Featuring a selection of fifteen works, Art of Glass reveals an inspirational snapshot of glass art today, made by fifteen innovative artists:
