Eclectic

28.10.16 - 12.11.16

London Glassblowing is delighted to be hosting an extraordinarily diverse collection of work by some of the UK’s foremost artists working in glass.  Following her installation at Salisbury Cathedral, Sabrina Cant is showing examples of her extraordinary cast glass pieces; from the Czech Republic we have minimal and dramatic blown glass forms by rising star Ondrej Novotny, who is also demonstrating his talents in our studio on the 28th of October.
Eclectic will also feature Harry Morgan’s cutting edge sculptural forms which juxtapose concrete and glass; exquisite sea polished glass jewellery by Gina Cowen; smart designer lighting by Sarah Colson; cheeky cast mice by Morag Reekie with a serious message; and a wall sculpture by Keiko Mukaide –  this show promises to be an exceptionally rich and eclectic mix.

Jotunheim, Backhaus & Brown and Egeværk

Glasskibe is a collaboration between neighbouring workshops, Backhaus & Brown which focuses on glass and Egevært, a woodworking studio. Nanna Backhaus Brown and Andrew Jason Brown, both professional glass artists, decided to collaborate with Lasse Kristensen and Mette Bentzen, woodartist and cabinet makers translating the history of their surroundings in Hundested, Denmark of maritime and Viking past into art.

Jotunheim: Home of the ‘jætter’ to the north. The ‘jætter’ were supernatural beings of giant size.

“I use the liquid dynamics of the molten glass to produce organic, free-flowing shapes and then apply decorative techniques to describe their three-dimensional nature.

This results in forms and patterns evoking the spiral geometry of the Golden Ratio and Fibonacci Series – mathematical sequences found throughout nature, from the growth of leaves and seed heads in plant life to human DNA itself.” – Liam Reeves

“Glass, with its unclear borders and internal dimension reflects ambiguity or the intangible. In sharp contrast, concrete is brutally physical; the word itself is used to describe absolutes and certainties. I enjoy not only the physical tension between the transparent glass thread and uncompromising, dense concrete but also the discourse between the literal and abstraction.” – Harry Morgan

Gina Cowen creates striking jewellery from pieces of glass that were once discarded. Her pieces have an earthly luminescence, combining fragments that have been polished by the sea with silver findings.

Ruth Shelley creates kiln-formed vessels made using the ‘drop out’ method. She cuts multiple strips of glass and arranges them in complex layers and patterns which are fused into a flat sheet. The sheet is then suspended in a kiln on an open mould. Through controlled heat the glass becomes fluid and gravity stretches it to the floor of the kiln. It is then cut, polished and sandblasted to produce the finished vessel.
