16 June - 9 July

Summer Solstice was a collection of new work by nearly 30 leading glass artists

In celebration of the longest day of the year and also Peter’s 86th birthday, we were pleased to announce our Summer Solstice exhibition in 2023. 

The show’s theme revolved around time and the cyclical nature of life. It inspired our artists to create stunning new works expressing the brilliant colours and advent of light as the northern hemisphere tilts towards the sun.
