Swedish Glass Exhibition 'Boda Builders' at Red House Glass Cone

Red House Glass Cone, High Street, Wordsley, Stourbridge, DY8 4AZ 10am to 3pm Monday to Friday, 11am to 4pm Saturday & Sunday

The Swedish Glass exhibition “Boda Builders” shows that in recent years Swedish glass has entered a period of transition. It is no longer production in large units that serves as a basis for contemporary glass practices, but rather an international, experimental, research-oriented activity, often interdisciplinary and on a project basis with a strong focus on placemaking. By deconstructing glass as a material practice the makers investigate innovative possibilities for the craft, where the structures and norms in today’s glass Swedish tradition are broken down and the view of glass and its production and development is broadened through the support of innovative places.
