Poland’s contemporary glass to be exhibited in Germany

Ten years on from their last exhibition at Germany’s Glasmuseum Lette, glass artists from Poland’s Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Art and Design in Wrocław will be showing their glass art there once again this summer.

The invitation was extended to lecturers, graduates and students from the Academy following Glasmuseum Lette’s visit there in spring 2023. The glass department there features a state-of-the-art creative workshop in a spacious new building, equipped with a broad array of technical equipment for training students in glass, including hot and cold methods like glassblowing, fusing, lampwork, glass painting, cutting, engraving, architectural glass and restoration.

Experienced and specialist teaching staff who collaborate with international experts ensure a high level of instruction. The students have a unique opportunity to engage with glass in an interdisciplinary fashion, gaining new perspectives that help them to find their own artistic path.

The artists from Poland will be presenting around 50 works, all demonstrating accomplished use of the various glassmaking techniques, as well as breaking with tradition to create something new. Their works are abstract, sculptural, narrative, ironic or moving. Each piece makes its own personal statement, displaying a unique character, style, and form in glass.

The exhibition takes place from 8 June to 20 October 2024 at Glasmuseum Lette, Letter Berg 38, 48653 Coesfeld-Lette, Germany. Opening times: Wednesdays and Saturdays 2-5pm,Sundays 11am-5pm. www.glasmuseum-lette.de
