Planet Earth: An Ode to Our Wonderful World

7 - 30 June

This summer, London Glassblowing presented a captivating exhibition paying homage to the awe-inspiring beauty of our planet and the urgent need to protect it - Planet Earth.

It was our great pleasure to curate this expansive showcase of glass artworks inspired by the wonders of the natural world. Just as Attenborough's groundbreaking documentaries open our eyes to the marvels of Earth's biodiversity, this exhibition aimed to create a powerful artistic experience that ignites a deeper appreciation for our planet's magnificence.

Through sculpture, installation, and more, nearly 30 artists presented a poetic ode to the vibrant landscapes, creatures, and ecosystems that make up the rich tapestry of life on Earth. However, some focused on an environmental call to action through their interpretation of the escalating effects of climate change.

By harnessing the mesmeric qualities of glass, Planet Earth allowed you to gain new perspectives and profound connections to the natural world.
