My last trip to The National Glass Centre for the final assembling of work.
Julia Stephenson, Head of Arts at National Glass Centre said: “Through this project the jewellers and artists specialising in glass have collaborated, sharing their skills and challenging what is accepted as standard practice in both jewellery and glass. Around forty years ago artists started to make radical new jewellery using ‘non-precious’ materials. This work had an enormous impact on how we consider and value jewellery today. As a result of the very specific skills required to work in glass there has been very little overlap between artists working in glass and those working in jewellery. We have aimed to begin to address this through our exhibition.”
