The Contemporary Glass Society (CGS) is the UK’s foremost organisation for supporting established artists, for supporting up-and-coming makers and for promoting contemporary glass in the wider art world. The CGS and Pyramid Gallery are extremely pleased to be collaborating once again in promoting exceptional talent, and on this occasion to be commemorating the 300th anniversary year of Handel’s fantastic Water Music.
The CGS invited its members to let their imagination flow and newly create an inspired piece of glass, or submit work that was directly inspired by Water or Music. Over 50 CGS members, from all corners of the world sent us marvellous inspired submissions, and it was extremely hard for the selection panel to make the final choices of twenty seven artists’ work.
