1 - 23 July | 2022
25 years of the Contemporary Glass Society
2022 was noteworthy for a number of reasons: Firstly, it was the United Nations International Year of Glass, something which we here at London Glassblowing were very excited about. Secondly, it marked the 25th anniversary of the Contemporary Glass Society, which Peter Layton co-founded. CGS is the UK’s foremost organisation for the promotion and support of cutting-edge contemporary glass and glass artists.
To celebrate this milestone, CGS curated a special exhibition, Earth/Sea/Sky, to be shown at London Glassblowing Gallery during the month of July. This was a juried show in which selected artists showcased new and exciting works, some of a collaborative nature, either through working together with another artist or by combining materials and/or techniques.
This diverse exhibition highlighted the variety of directions and talents currently at work within British Glass Art.
