Calligraphy at the National Glass Centre
Beyond Traditions is an exhibition in the Gallery of the National Glass Centre in Sunderland and it features the work of five artists including two Northumbrian Scribes. Manny Ling, Susan Moor, Ewan Clayton, Ayako Tani and Peter Furlonger all have pieces on display. Shown is one of several works on paper by Manny Ling where he has added calligraphy to paper marked with burns made by molten glass. There is a video display showing how the glass was applied to the paper to produce the marks.
The stone piece by Peter Furlonger is Bede's Death Song cut in black slate and mounted on a marble base. He also has some glass vases etched with calligraphy on display.
Although a small exhibition it is well worth a visit for the variety and quality of work on display. The exhibition runs until 9th October. For further information visit the link below:
