Sunderland’s National Glass Centre is celebrating the international network of artists working in glass is a new show: Glass World.

Glass World presents a range of objects (such as Dale Chihuly’s ‘Blue Sea Form’ – pictured) created by artists from, or based in, Canada, New Zealand, Argentina, Japan and beyond. Julia Stephenson, Head of Arts at NGC: “We’re delighted to be presenting an exhibition of work created by glass artists from such a wide range of countries. Many of the pieces have been created here in Sunderland, or the artists involved will have a connection with NGC. The exhibition is about internationalism rather than nationalism, so work is being shown in relation to the country where the artist’s practice has had the greatest influence, rather than just their country of birth of current residence.”

Glass World, until 10 March 2024, National Glass Centre, Sunderland,
