For the very first time this December, we welcome Gregory Warren Wilson’s brilliantly colourful and innovative glass to New Craftsman Gallery.
Gregory’s work plays with the translucent nature of glass. Conceived in multiple layers, sometimes as many as six, his designs allow light to interact with the glass spatially – sparkling, scintillating, and appearing to shimmer as you look at them.
The tesserae he uses are hand-cut in Murano with great precision, so that the individual tesserae reflect and refract light in an extraordinary variety of ways.
The exhibition includes a personal response to the poem by Wallace Stevens 'Sea Surface Full of Clouds'. Each stanza is represented by an interpretation in mosaic.
Accompanying Gregory's works will be a new collection of paintings by Martha Holmes,
Neil Canning, Carol Hosking-Smith and jewellery by Sam Photic.
There will be a Private View afternoon between 2pm and 4pm on Saturday 4th of December.
We will be hosting a conversation at 3pm with Joanna Bird and Gregory Warren Wilson.
Please let us know if you wish to attend.
