Converge: Six women in glass

Activity: Other activity typesTypes of Public engagement and outreach - Festival/Exhibition


Doubtfire Gallery continues to show bold and diverse work by presenting an exhibition by six Scottish based female glass makers throughout the Edinburgh Festival - Karen Akester, Amanda Baron, Kate Henderson, Vicky Higginson, Jessamy Kelly and Susan O’Connor. These artists first worked together in a group show with the Scottish Glass Society, an exhibition of new work reflecting a diverse range of contemporary and traditional approaches to glass making. In this exhibition, for the first time in Edinburgh, six women artists will bring together personal observations in glass responding to landscape and the environment, emotions and human interaction, architecture and the home. These themes are revealed through a variety of techniques from casting to cutting, etching and blowing, painting and finishing, giving form and image to the base material of glass through exceptional skill and mastery of their individual techniques and processes. This is a collection of sophisticated ideas realised through a dedication to, and strength in, their craft with a strong visual sense of our environment, heritage and identity.
