Jewellery Wearable GlassGlass jewellery made through exciting collaborations between glass artists and jewellers.

National Glass Centre, Sunderland, 25 March to 1 October.

 

National Glass Centre presents a new national exhibition of glass jewellery made by bringing together four glass artists and eight exciting UK jewellers, including ACJ advisor John Moore and ACJ members Chris Boland and Heather Woof.

Four glass artists specialising in different techniques shared their expertise with eight jewellers who had ten days each to create experimental new work in glass.

This exciting new ‘wearable glass’ will be presented alongside the twelve artist’s more established work allowing the viewer to compare the difference between artist’s work in glass and jewellery.
