Teepee Glass celebrate 10 years of working together with a group exhibition at the Stained Glass Museum at Ely Cathedral. TP10YRS features new work based on the theme of ‘10’. Other works will be on display such as lightboxes, glass pictures, bowls, vessels and jewellery. All items are available to buy with 40% of the proceeds going directly to the Museum.
The exhibition coincides with Ely Cathedral’s prestigious annual Christmas Gift and Food Fair 13-14 November 2015 where the Cathedral opens its doors to over 150 exhibitors of which the Museum will be one, selling many Teepee Glass pieces as the perfect unique Christmas gift.
“Having previously exhibited at Ely, it’s great to be back here at such a special time of year for the Cathedral. We always feel we are in amazing company with the beautifully preserved panels in the Museum”. Wendy Stone, Curator
Teepee Glass include: Andrew Boddington, Maria Fagan, Iain Gutteridge, Brett Manley, Alex R, Pippa Stacey and Wendy Stone. These glass artists originally met at Central Saint Martins in 2005 and formed ‘Teepee Glass’ after having spent ten nights under canvas at the Glass Biennale at Stourbridge. Since then they have enjoyed exhibiting in venues including the International Festival of Glass in Stourbridge, The De Morgan Foundation in Wandsworth and were regular exhibitors at the much missed Cochrane Gallery in Holborn. Taking their inspiration from people, the beauty of nature, living in the city, optical illusions, playing with light and form, and being led by the material itself, their award-winning works range from jewellery to windows to installations all of which display their diverse glass skills and craftsmanship. Examples of their work can be found at teepeeglass.com.
