“Cycles of Life”  Launched on 6th May 2024

From the smallest microbe to the biggest animal on earth – the Antarctic blue whale – we all experience the cycle of life from birth Preview Changes (opens in a new tab)through to death.  Shakespeare wrote about the 7 ages of man – the infant, the schoolboy, the lover, the soldier, the justice, the pantaloon and old age.

The rhythm of life has a powerful beat so we invited CGS members and glass artists to show us their journey through the natural world. Even their glass pieces go through a cycle of creation!

37 Contemporary Glass Society (CGS) Members took up the invitation – and here we show you what they produced!

Most work is for sale – please contact the artists directly to make a purchase.

If you need any help or have any questions about the show or taking part, PLEASE EMAIL info@cgs.org.uk

Description: This grouping has a silent dialogue between the nautilus structures, their hollow chambers echoing an unknown relationship allowing the viewer to draw close and bring their own imaginings. The stoic discourse aims to visualise the moment of tension between isolation, containment and distancing with the recent varying reasons for feeling so.

Description: Scientific glassworking is now an endangered craft in Britain and by incorporating these techniques into this body of work a parallel is drawn between the devastation of coral reefs (coral bleaching) and the loss of scientific glass blowing. Both are being eroded by time and the collection allows for a contemplation upon this, as well as a hope to raise awareness to these issues.

Title:Seahorses

Description: Each seahorse was made using a mixture of clear crushed glass and 15 different coloured glass frits and powders which were laid onto the kiln shelf. The perforated structure is designed to convey the skeletal form and often translucent nature of the seahorse. Numerous experiments were done to achieve the desired size and shape of the ‘holes’ before the final three were created and kiln fired.

Contact: Lynn Purcell

Details: These glass seahorses are designed to be wall mounted with a stand off being used as the eyes which are of variable diameters and depths so they hang 2-4cms away from the wall.

In Greek mythology, asphodel was a symbol of the underworld and mourning while in Scottish folklore, it was thought that livestock grazing on this plant developed brittle bones. But it was the calcium poor pasture that was the true culprit.

Title:Shoal

Description: This grouping has a silent dialogue between the nautilus structures, their hollow chambers echoing an unknown relationship allowing the viewer to draw close and bring their own imaginings. The stoic discourse aims to visualise the moment of tension between isolation, containment and distancing with the recent varying reasons for feeling so.

Title:Beauties and Nature III

Description: This group of works is created using the methods of blowing, inside hollowing out and inside oil painting. The works reflect the traditional Chinese Taoist philosophy of harmonious coexistence between man and nature. The trajectory of life is also a process of reincarnation. The work illustrates this view through both the glass sculptural form and the inside painting.

Title:Message in a Bottle

Description: Scientific glassworking is now an endangered craft in Britain and by incorporating these techniques into this body of work a parallel is drawn between the devastation of coral reefs (coral bleaching) and the loss of scientific glass blowing. Both are being eroded by time and the collection allows for a contemplation upon this, as well as a hope to raise awareness to these issues.

Description: Two interlocking free-standing panels, showing a view from my window. As the seasons change, our trees transform from saturated green forms to becoming a lattice of sculptural bare branches. Each year it's a different view, with the weather conditions changing, the sunsets blazing or the birds nesting in their branches. The seasonal circle of nature.

Title:Seahorses

Description: Each seahorse was made using a mixture of clear crushed glass and 15 different coloured glass frits and powders which were laid onto the kiln shelf. The perforated structure is designed to convey the skeletal form and often translucent nature of the seahorse. Numerous experiments were done to achieve the desired size and shape of the ‘holes’ before the final three were created and kiln fired.

Contact: Lynn Purcell

Details: These glass seahorses are designed to be wall mounted with a stand off being used as the eyes which are of variable diameters and depths so they hang 2-4cms away from the wall.

Description: The circle of life is a recurring theme in my work. "Generations" is a good example of this interest. I work with glass powders and carving tools to create mushrooms, lichen, bark, leaves and more without the use of moulds. I rely on heat and gravity in the kiln to create shapes that mirror the life cycle of the forest floor. I leave the real forest floor in place and rely on imagination to create

Title:Asphodel II

Description: This vessel was inspired by the plant bog asphodel (Narthecium ossifragum) that have star-like flowers in a bright yellow with vibrant orange accents.

In Greek mythology, asphodel was a symbol of the underworld and mourning while in Scottish folklore, it was thought that livestock grazing on this plant developed brittle bones. But it was the calcium poor pasture that was the true culprit.
