Details

Glass is a versatile and captivating medium, which touches our lives in many ways and brings much pleasure and joy to those who behold, make and design it. The artform is an ancient craft and is also at the forefront of technology.

Glisten and Shine: Glass' presents established makers such as Vinegar and Brown Paper, Samantha Yates, Hayley Gammon, Stephen Foster, Abundant Glass and Nick Claiden.

Comparing material, style and technique to those makers in Bradford's own glass collection, view classical Venetian glass and contemporary works by makers such as Kalim Afzal. Contemporary knitted glass by Catherine Carr sits alongside historical works inspired by the Orient and Far East, in this instance, Iran, by Louis Comfort Tiffany. Peter Layton, Priscilla Morgan-Hill and glass from Lithuania as well as Bohemian Persian perfume bottles also feature.

View the variety of styles and range of techniques of glass by artists, designers and craftspeople.

This selection presents new work demonstrating excellence in design, creative imagination and technical skill alongside the more traditional classical works. Some work is available for purchase supporting makers to establish a strong foundation for their business.
