Contemporary Studio Glass | 06 June – 24 July 2013


Venue: Gater Lane, Waterford City

Three x 3: Contemporary Studio Glass.
Admission Free

The essence of the global Studio Glass movement that began in the early 60s was to take the material out of its usual industrial setting and put it into the hands of artists. Glass production had long been governed by utilitarian needs and the demands of the marketplace, which were met by industrial designers and modern methods of mass production.

When artists were involved with the glass factories’ typically in the design of limited edition pieces he traditional division of labour between designer and maker was respected, and the resultant work reflected no direct, hands-on experience by the artist. Studio Glass was an experiment that merged the sensibility of artists with the skills of a craftsman, that scaled industrial technologies down to a manageable size for private studios, and that made an ancient medium into a vehicle of contemporary expression.

The four star self catering accommodation at Seacliff Holiday Homes, Dunmore East is the perfect location for all events within County Waterford.
