This one-day symposium will explore the special nature of glass in craft and industry. It will focus on the development of innovative approaches and creative opportunities for glass. It will bring together a number of high profile keynote speakers and glass professionals, such as Dr David Bricknell, Dr Vanessa Cutler, and Prof Kevin Petrie who work with new technologies or use traditional processes in new ways to expand creative vocabularies and technical possibilities.

The symposium seeks to explore similarities and differences across the differing attitudes to the special nature of the material ‘glass’. We have invited papers from a wide spectrum that reaches from the position of individual craft practitioners when faced with the new formal vocabulary inherent in a new manufacturing or making process, to that of a glass technologist seeking to develop a new type of glass product.
