Veste Coburg Art Collections / European Museum for Modern Glass
Director: Dr. Sven Hauschke
The 5th edition of the Coburg Prize for Contemporary Glass aims to provide a Europe-wide overview of current trends and developments in contemporary glass art and again take stock of the situation. The objective is to show which design and processing techniques artists currently use, which thematic content predominates and whether current social questions, such as sustainability, migration, political suppression, globalisation and climate change are taken into account. It is also a matter of ascertaining how far glass is still considered purely as a material or whether, given its numerous possible uses and special properties, such as transparency, it is viewed as a complex medium with multiple meanings.
For the exhibition at the Veste Coburg and the European Museum of Modern Glass in Rödental, a special educational programme for children, teenagers and adults is being developed on the theme of glass as a material in art and in the living world, and as a vehicle for meaning.
"Mechanics" has been selected for this exhibition.

White House Cone Exhibition
Stourbridge, West Midlands.
Since its launch in 2010 B-A has established itself as a major promoter of, and dealer in, the work of artists who use glass as an expressive medium. Its base in the Stourbridge was, for centuries, a traditional glassmaking area, but, since the demise of the factories has seen a regeneration in glass making through a network of small studios within which predominantly unique pieces are produced. In addition the area is also home to a world renowned collection of glass (currently being rehoused), and educational establishments with a long history of specialisation in glass. While Bruntnell-Astley has naturally reflected the richness of this area in its stable of artists it has always sought to develop a wider, more international profile. The selection criteria adopted by B-A cuts across boundaries to reach only work of great originality and quality. Following its successful presence at Collect 2017, the show planned for August will run as part of the 2017 international festival of glass, and will help to showcase the new White House Cone Museum building before Stourbridge`s historical collection moves in.
The artists in this important show are, true to B-A`s ethos, from disparate backgrounds, and present a variety of approaches to their choice of material. Contributors vary in age and experience, from veteran Keith Cummings, with new works that reflect over half a century of involvement with glass in the Stourbridge area, and his life-time interest in glass casting, to newer artists like Simone Crestani who works in Venice and who presents ground-breaking, large scale lamp-worked sculptural pieces. Techniques used by the exhibitors vary from those, like glass blowing, which have been used for millennia, to 21st century processes like water-jet cutting, and the resulting variety of form, colour and texture present an overall view of the material, used by a diverse body of artists in artefacts, that represent the very best of contemporary studio glass.
