High and Mighty! Live on 4th September 2023

High and Mighty!

Theme: Architecture/structural glass

We live in glass buildings – both commercial and residential. We are surrounded by glass as a building material. Typically it is used as transparent glazing material within the building envelope but we know what else it can be used for!

Windows, wall panels, ceilings, bar fascias, feature sculptures – all can transform their surroundings with colour, light, pattern, texture and design! A building is given personality, gravitas, exuberance or comfort by the inspired use of decorative glass. So in this online exhibition, we invited CGS Members to have the opportunity to flaunt their glorious architectural glass.

17 glass artists took part.

This is a selling show, so please contact the artists directly regarding purchases or commissions.

For show enquiries please email Nicky at info@cgs.org.uk

Launched on:9th September 2023

Title:The Tree of Jesse

Description: Commissioned for Glasgow Cathedral and completed in 2018, this window abstractly depicts the family tree of Jesus. The bloodline traced back to Jesse, the father of King David, is shown in red and new life by vigorous green growth and light. Other trees (gentiles) are embraced - now through Jesus all may become part of God's life.

Title:networking

Description: The architectural stained glass (skylight window) is installed in a listed private hotel, built 1915.
A hotel is a temporary home where different people meet, have breakfast together, are mostly on their own, but sometimes also make new acquaintances or friends. Therefore, I decided to work with a net to symbolise those encounters.

Title:Seascape Window

Description: This Seascape window was made for the stairway in a new house. The clients wanted an abstract design inspired by the sun over the sea, to match their modern aesthetic. To meet building regulations, the traditionally made stained glass window was encapsulated within a double glazed unit, essentially creating a triple glazed window. The colours sing in the sunlight and the clients were thrilled.
