We are very pleased to be included in this year’s international Festival of Glass and bring you an exhibition by eight established masters of their particular craft.
David Reekie’s figurative forms, made using lost wax technique, express his unique vision of the human condition. His piece ‘The Unstable Pedestal I’, can be seen in the Biennale at the Ruskin Centre. David’s daughter Morag Reekie’s mischievous, colourful glass sculptures have evolved from drawings inspired by playing with her children. Corrina Field explores the ethereal themes of mysticism and ritual through the combination of glass with raw elements. Martin Andrews’ works attempt to freeze a moment in time, capturing the very essence of the moving material that is molten glass. Vic Bamforth combines hand-painting and glass blowing skills to create one-off internationally collected, sculptural works of art. Steve Jackson’s practice is influenced by the fluidity and spontaneity of the materials. Paul Floyd employs fused, kiln-formed and fire-polished glass in his wall hanging art pieces. Melissa Nicholls’ recent work is an abstract representation of the mind and how it is affected by illness, such as dementia.
