All Fired Up! Exhibition of Glass at Redearth Gallery 26 Oct – 4 Nov 2012

By Helen, 17/10/2012 8:49 pm

All Fired Up is an exhibition of kiln-formed glass by nine Devon Artists at Redearth Gallery, Bickleigh Mill, Tiverton  26 Oct  to 4 Nov.  (redearth-art.com)    The group came together as a result of attending kiln-formed workshops by Anne Smyth at her Devon Studio (www.annesmyth.com) and despite working in the same medium the end results are all very different in their creativity.  This is the first time that they have exhibited together so the work reflects the different personalities in the group and the versatility of the medium!
