Contemporary Pâte de Verre exhibition in Stourbridge
In January 2024, a unique exhibition of work by internationally acclaimed Pâte de Verre glass artists will be showing at Stourbridge Glass Museum in the West Midlands, UK. The exhibition is based on the comprehensive book Pâte de Verre: The Material of Time, by Dr Max Stewart and Tone Ørvik, which was published in 2022.
The exhibition opens on 27 January 2024 with a private view and runs until June 2024.
The works of Emma Varga (Australia), Alicia Lomné (US), Keith Cummings (UK) and other pioneers of contemporary Pâte de Verre will be part of the show.
For this exhibition Stourbridge Glass Museum is cooperating with the Contemporary Pâte de Verre Association (CPdVA), which works to support new investigations into Pâte de Verre and present what this glass technique can do in sculpture and creating new narratives for a rapidly changing world.
CPdVA was set up by Max and Tone, with US-based glass artists Evelyn Gottschall Baker and Tali Grinshpan. It offers conferences, workshops and exhibitions worldwide.
