Jewellery: Wearable Glass aims to re-introduce audiences and artists to the amazing potential of glass as a wearable material. Glass jewellery has a history going back to the Ancient Egyptians and in the 19th and early 20th century the famous artist René Lalique used glass to make jewellery.
This exciting new ‘wearable glass’ will be presented alongside the twelve artist’s more established work; allowing the viewer to compare the difference between artist’s work in glass and jewellery and what happens when they are brought together.
