Explores the work of leading glass artists in Britain today.

#ArtofGlass

Over the last 50 years Britain has had a significant impact on how glass is perceived as an art form. Many artists have based themselves here, drawn to the teaching and world-renowned facilities the UK offers.

Presented in partnership with The National Centre for Craft & Design, this exhibition examines the diverse work of glass artists working in Britain today.

Explore how they are embracing the medium of glass in new ways, and see a selection of outstanding works that reveal a snapshot of glass art.
