Stourbridge Celebration of Glass exhibition
The first edition of a new annual exhibition celebrating glass making from the Stourbridge Glass Quarter takes place from 8-24 September 2023 at the General Office Gallery in Stourbridge, West Midlands.
The exhibition showcases the work of six diverse makers, using techniques ranging from traditional copper wheel engraving, cameo glass and enamelling to contemporary studio glass and sculptural works.
Glass artists to be showcased include Vic Bamforth, Terri Colledge, Jacqueline Cooley, George Jackson, Steve Piper and Georgia Redpath.
As part of the event there will also be a talk and a demonstration. The talk, by Georgia Redpath, will cover both her inspiration – the patterns and structures found in nature – and her approach to the process of kiln cast glass. It is on Saturday 9 September from 2-3pm (No booking necessary).
On Saturday 23 September from 12-2pm, Terri Colledge will be demonstrating her techniques of enamel painting onto glass, as well as talking about her cameo glass engraving and the Portland Vase (No booking necessary).
The General Office Gallery is at 12 Hagley Road, Stourbridge DY8 1PS. It is open daily 11am-4pm (closed Monday 19 and Tuesday 20 September) (stair access only). Website: www.generaloffice.co.uk
