A Showcase of Kiln Formed Glass by Amanda Simmons & Cathryn Shilling

 January 31st - March 1st 2014

The Gallery at London Glassblowing is delighted to present this showcase of contemporary kiln formed glass featuring two dynamic and inventive artists.


Amanda makes sculptural kiln formed and cameo engraved glass vessels from her studio in Corsack, Scotland. She uses many processes to create her fine, elusive work that is rich in colour and pattern and reacts to the ambient light.


Cathryn works from her studio in London and uses bold, experimental techniques to make sculptural kiln formed vessels, standing forms and wall pieces. Using texture, light and colour in a surprising way she evokes a sense of movement from within the glass.


Both artists create their work by using gravity in the heat of the kiln. Their aim is to push the processes of fusing and slumping glass beyond the accepted technical parameters in order to produce surprising and unique work.

All of the work on show will be available for sale.
