Blown, Bound and Bold solo exhibition launches at Vessel Gallery

Emerging glass artist Chris Day is making his debut at Vessel Gallery, with a solo exhibition running from 28 September to 31 October 2020. His highly personal pieces discuss and investigate the treatment of black people in Britain and the USA, making his artworks powerful and thought provoking.

The show is part of London Craft Week, which runs from 30 September – 8 October, and Kensington & Chelsea Art Week, on from 1-11 October.

Chris Day says, “Like the glass, I have pushed my approach in how I work with glass and ceramics in both traditional and experimental methods, to create contemporary artworks that represent my passion for this part of our history. As a black glassblower, I am one of few, and on a quest to find and inspire more. My main purpose, however, is to engage the audience on issues that are hard to confront on many levels, using art to help overcome some of the traumas that haunt our collective past.”

Vessel Gallery is at 114 Kensington Park Rd, London W11 2PW, and the exhibition is open from Monday to Friday, 11am to 5pm.
