50 Years of Studio Glass from Great Britian

May 23, 2011

50 years of Studio Glass from Great Britain
For the first time a museum in Germany is presenting an exclusive review of 50 years of Studio Glass from Great Britain. More than 60 works from over 50 artists are shown. The selection includes artistically designed and in large quantity produced giftware, highly elaborate individual work and complex installations.

Nearly half of the exhibits are loans from artists as well as the Studio Glass collection of the Ernsting foundation Alter Hof Herding in Coesfeld.

The extensive collection of British Studio Glass from the European Museum of Modern Glass, which has been acquired during a period of forty years and particularly at the Coburg glass prizes, can be seen almost completely for the first time.
