A Portrait of Place
Saturday 10 October – Monday 9 November
Artisan glassmakers Stephen Gillies and Kate Jones produce internationally acclaimed works from their studio in Rosedale Abbey, continuing a local glass-making tradition that has endured since the 16th century.
To celebrate their 25th anniversary year, Gillies Jones explore the place they call home in a stunning exhibition of blown and engraved glassware that reflects the marks left over time by geology, water, nature and human endeavour. Light is integral to this work, animating the glass, revealing layers of colour and engraving.
