An astounding variety of glass work will fill the Malthouse Gallery in Lyme Regis as it opens its first show devoted to the art of contemporary glassmaking. A new collection of abstract sculpture, wall hangings, functional vessels and jewellery by artists from the Just Glass: from Kiln to Coast exhibition.
Just Glass will demonstrate the beauty that can be achieved with kiln-formed glass (also known as ‘warm glass’ as opposed to ‘hot glass’ disciplines such as glass-blowing). It will feature established and emerging glass artists belonging to the Just Glass collective. Kiln-formed glass art is a beautiful medium which has aesthetic potential which is only just being explored. The artwork can be sculptural or flat, tiny or huge, with or without inclusions.
Having held their last 5 shows in London, Just Glass has chosen to exhibit in the south-west for the first time. Just Glass members are enthusiastic and passionate about glass art, innovating and experimenting with a range of processes to produce original and unique pieces.
Open 10.30 – 4.30 daily, free entry
