Falling Grey Glass Vessel is an excellent example of the refined talents of glass artist Cathryn Shilling. It has beautiful illustrative leaves descending across the surface of its polished design.
Gallery In The Lanes is proud to have a selection of Cathryn Shilling’s highly skilled glass work in our display. Cathryn’s pieces include delicately woven glass sculptures, vases and lidded vessels. All are beautifully finished and unique in their design, colouring and technique.
Cathryn Shilling first studied glass in Connecticut having moved there with her family following a successful graphic design career. After further study in London, she has gone on to create a large and varied collection of kiln formed and hot glass of great beauty and collectability. She uses bold and experimental techniques, skilfully combining the fluidity and transparency of glass with materials such as metals and ceramic transfers to produce one-off sculptural pieces. Shape, texture, light and colour are used to great effect to create joyful and exciting work, which is always innovative and surprising. In 2010 Shilling joined the team at Peter Layton’s London Glassblowing Studio and Gallery as Exhibition Co-ordinator and Curator, as well as becoming a member of The Artworkers Guild
Cathryn is participating in London Craft Week 2016:
She says, “I’m delighted to be exhibiting my Cloaked pieces as part of London Craft Week at Vessel Gallery and the Devereux Huskie show, Collective Genius which runs from 3rd May till 11th June. Anthony Scala made this wonderful film for me about this body of work and how the pieces are made.
