Annie Ross ‘Passing Ships in the Night’
Etched, fused and leaded flashed St Just glass. ‘The theme is abstract, but alludes to both boat shapes and the intersection of two overlapping circles in the Vesica Pisces.’
Surinder Warboys 'Palimpsest'
Antique glass, paint and silver chloride, diaper technique, staining, firing and plating. 'The panel evolved out of thoughts on climate change and coming across an article in which the elephant was referred to as an Environmental Engineer.'
Sophie D'Souza ‘Many Happy Returns’
Double layer glass with 6mm deep heart lead throughout. Sandblasted, flashed glass, painting. ‘Although there was no theme to this exhibition, with it being in celebration of the BSMGP centenary, birthdays came to mind. When using tallow I am always reminded of our craft's link to the past.’
Emma Butler Cole Aiken AMGP 'Reel'
Painted and leaded glass. 'You know that social distancing is getting to you when you look at some trees and imagine them dancing at a ceilidh. Longing for what will again be but far from possible at the time of making.'
Grace Ayson ‘Summer Stain’
Layered glass, hand painted with stains and a blue enamel. 'The memory and heat of summer 2020 - Isolation spent within the confines of a wild garden filled with sunflowers. Waiting for the sunbursts of warm bright colours against blue to repeat the show this summer, as tall flowers spring forth from the fallen seeds hibernating on winter ground.'
Claire Cornish 'Winter Geese'
Stained glass (painted and leaded mouthblown Polish glass) 'Inspired by the geese which fly in great skeins over the house every autumn and spring on their way to and from Morecambe Bay.'
Natasha Redina ‘The Alchemist’
Stained glass painting. ‘The theme is transmutation and the interwoven historical roots of glasswork and alchemy. The images were inspired by three pieces, the woodcut of glass workshops by Jost Amman (Frankfurt 1586), The Flammarion wood engraving and the oil painting of 'An old man holding a pilgrim bottle' in the National Gallery London (circa 1650's) both by unknown artists.'
Benjamin Pascal Finn AMGP 'Peter’s vision Acts 10:11'
Mainly Wissmach glass, glass paint and silver stain. 'Peter’s vision on the roof of a house near Joppa of ‘unclean’ animals descending accompanied by a voice saying ‘what God hath made clean call not thou unclean’.'
