Glass just got Super Cool. Materials, makers and ideas meld together in this cutting edge exhibition that defies expectations of contemporary glass and pushes this fascinating material to its limits.

About

Glass is neither a liquid nor a solid material and its manipulation relies on a high level of technical skill and creativity. Heated Exchanges showcases three UK artists who collaborate with this unique material to capture its elemental power.

Harry Morgan’s gravity-defying sculptures capture glass’s fragility and strength against cool cast concrete. London based Elinor Portnoy strips the material back to its origins, capturing its natural sand-like state against brightly coloured vessels. And in Alexander Pearce’s work wrought iron is combined with hot glass to create a stunning contrast of form and materials.
