Revealing a New Wave in British Glass Blowing - Breath Taking features cutting-edge work in blown glass by 22 makers.

The selected makers illustrate a contemporary and lyrical approach to this age-old process through the presentation of exciting new works, many of which are conceptual and non-functional forms that breathe a new life into a traditional practice.17 new works are shown along-side five exemplary pieces from the crafts council collection. A glass hand-grenade, a scale-model of a futuristic apartment-block and glass wind instruments all feature.
