“Holiday Heaven” Online Exhibition

2022 has been a fantastic year for contemporary glass! Not only has it been the International Year of Glass but the Contemporary Glass Society also celebrated its 25th anniversary. In addition, the International Festival of Glass was held at Stourbridge for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic.

To mark the Commonwealth Games being held in Birmingham in 2022, CGS decided to dedicate its exhibition at the Festival to the amazing countries and people of the Commonwealth. So over 100 glass artists took a magical mystery tour and produced postcards featuring the richness of countries ranging from Australia to Maldives, from New Zealand to Malta, from Singapore to Tanzania. Commonwealth countries are diverse – they are amongst the world’s biggest, smallest, richest, and poorest countries. We celebrated their sites, fauna and flora, sea world, agriculture, and industry and just their uniqueness in a small piece of glass holiday memorabilia.

Over 50 of these small and unique artworks from the original exhibition were sold but CGS still has a range of marvellous pieces which can be seen below.

All these Holiday Heaven pieces are for sale and looking for a home to fly to.

Please contact admin@cgs.org.uk if you are interested in becoming the proud owner of a piece of Commonwealth magic!

CGS is most grateful for the generosity of our sponsors for the event, Mark Holford and Alan J. Poole
