London Glassblowing has announced the follow-up show to the 2014 exhibition ‘VETRO’. Titled ‘VETRO II”, the exhibition, taking place in October 2022, will display and explore the Venetian influence and show homage to the extraordinary history, tradition, skill and invention of the Muranese glassmakers.
The 2014 exhibition was a resounding success so London Glassblowing will now host a follow-up show and has challenged seventeen innovative glassmakers to make new works inspired by this theme. The purpose is not to copy, rather to take inspiration from some aspect of Venetian practice and reinterpret this into a new body of work.
The show will exhibit works from the likes of Balázs Telegdi, Bruce Marks, Cathryn Shilling, and Charlott Rodgers and also exciting collaborations including internationally renowned artists David Patchen and James Devereux.
London Glassblowing will have a live online demonstration from the comfort of your own home featuring Liam Reeves who has recently joined the studio team and with many years of experience is a very accomplished glassblower and technician at the Royal College of Art. Liam specialises in the Venetian technique of reticello.
Entry to the studio and gallery is free and there is space for small numbers of visitors to watch the artists at work.
