We are proud to announce a showcase Colour and Light, a collection of work by Alison Kinnaird, one of the world’s leading glass artists and engravers. We will be exhibiting a diverse body of work that hasn’t been exhibited at London Glassblowing before.
With work in public, royal and private collections throughout Europe, America and the Far East, Alison Kinnaird’s glass ranges from small intimate pieces to large-scale architectural installations which incorporate light and colour. A recipient of many awards and winner of many competitions, her creative contribution was recognised in 1997, when she was presented with an M.B.E. for services to art and music.
“Engraving is often seen as small-scale and quiet. I love these qualities, but it is also satisfying to show that it can be vivid, brilliant and can take advantage of modern technology to express contemporary subjects.
During lockdown I have found that it is important to create works that have a hopeful, positive message. The Butterflies are no longer pinned down, but are escaping from the confinement of their collection. After forty years working in this field, I still find excitement and challenges in the potential of the medium, and the messages that it has to offer us today”.
