Across world cultures and time, glass and ceramics have been used as materials to make
objects that contain light. These objects are practical, they keep us safe from open flame or
they diffuse the glare of the electric light bulb. Many artists and designers have taken these
practical requirements and used glass and ceramics to create beautiful light sources that
also reflect cultural or religious significance, design styles of a particular time and the skill of
mastering different techniques associated with working in glass or ceramics.

The exhibition consists of works from National Glass Centre’s collection and loans from the
Victoria & Albert Museum’s (V&A) collection. The exhibition supports DesignLabNation, the
V&A’s National Schools Programme, which aims to inspire the next generation of designers.

Supported by Art Fund, The Foyle Foundation and The Barbour Foundation
