Synergy

11.09.15 - 17.10.15

London Glassblowing is proud to present Synergy, our final themed exhibition of 2015, which showcases a range of boundary pushing collaborations between artists, materials and techniques. 

The show features twenty award-winning glass artists, who have either collaborated directly with other renowned practitioners, combined two or more glassmaking techniques or engaged with various media - from cast bronze and maple stems, to silk thread and found objects.

The results are challenging and inspiring, taking the artists out of their comfort zones and beyond the limitations of their usual practice.
