VETRO II: Exploring the Venetian Influence was our homage to the extraordinary history, tradition, skill and invention of the Muranese glassmakers.

London Glassblowing held an exhibition in 2014 called VETRO which was a resounding success. To follow this, we hosted a second show in 2022 and challenged seventeen of the most innovative glassmakers to make new work inspired by this theme which will also include some exciting collaborations including internationally renowned artists David Patchen and James Devereux. The purpose was not to copy, rather to take inspiration from some aspect of Venetian practice and reinterpret this into a new body of work.
