The Hot Shop – MASTERS OF GLASS 2019

Sabbia Gallery is pleased to present The Hot Shop, the 24th edition of its annual Masters of Glass exhibition series. Each year Australia’s most influential and innovative artists working in glass are invited to exhibit in this greatly anticipated show.

For the 2019 exhibition Sabbia Gallery’s curator Anna Grigson has selected artists that primarily create their glass artwork in the hot shop. The exhibition presents works that concentrate on the highly skilled glass making techniques of blowing or hot sculpting, and all the diverse processes that are developed and achieved in the hot shop.

The exhibition also brings attention to and explores the importance of the integral relationships between the artist and their assistants in the making process.

Featuring Clare Belfrage, Annette Blair, Mel Douglas, Ben Edols & Kathy Elliott, Brenden Scott French, Holly Grace, Jenni Kemarre Martiniello, Nick Mount & Nick Wirdnam.
