Transparent Glass Studio will take a leading role in directing the Art Commissions Project, working alongside other Artists and craftspeople at the Ruskin Glass Centre.   The commissioned Artworks will draw inspiration from the industrial heritage of the area, the rich historic connection with the glass industry and the history of the Foster & Rastric foundry.
