Bruntnell-Astley Contemporary Glass Exhibition

Bruntnell-Astley presents a ‘Pop-Up’ Gallery of Contemporary glasswork on the 25th till 31st May 2015. 

This exhibition of the finest names in Contemporary Glass will be held in Kingswinford Methodist Church, Kingswinford (near Broadfield House Glass Museum) and will be running alongside the ‘International Festival of Glass Weekend’.

Pop-Up Exhibition Bruntnell Astley

THIS exhibition, organised by Bruntnell-Astley, provides a showcase for a number of glass artists, who, although united by medium, make stylistically diverse work through the use of a range of personal skills and approaches.  The works themselves demonstrate the broad scope of glass forming and decorating techniques and processes, including blowing, kiln-casting, lamp-working, slumping and fusing for shaping the glass, to enamelling, sandblasting and engraving to decorate it.  ‘Editorial from Craft Arts International 2015 ‘

Bruntnell-Astley is based in Stourbridge and is an online glass gallery, featuring a selection of the finest names in contemporary British studio glass.  Click Bruntnell-Astley to visit their website.

Artist In Residence – Bevere Gallery Exhibition

‘Artist in Residence’ Monika Mihalyfi has been selected to show her new work  ‘Glowing Vessels’ at the prestigious Worcestershire Bevere Gallery.

This new body of work  is a series of contemporary hand-thrown ceramic vessels made of porcelain.  In daylight they stand pure white and in the dark when lit from within they glow illuminating the patterns.

I was greatly inspired by the phenomenon, when the sky is hazy although no clearly defined clouds to be seen and the Sun trying to break through. The purity of this image taken me many times and slowly made the connection in me with the image of light, as they say or how I imagined, supposed to see through meditation. It also made the connection how porcelain looks with light behind.

Through my Glowing Vessels I intend to express or recall this image, the purity and purifying nature of Light… with that also inspire to wake the Light within us…MM
