Harmony, a Silver & Clear Woven Glass Standing Sculpture by Cathryn Shilling

$4,670.65

About the Item

'Harmony' is a unique sculpture by the British artist, Cathryn Shilling. Kiln formed fused glass with Metal (Nickel Chromium). Appearing as if woven from canes of shimmering silver, Harmony is an ambitious sculptural work. Initially created from layers of clear glass canes, the final finish of metal, adds a sumptuous appearance. Highlighting every fold of this luxurious 'cloth' the embellishment adds refinement and poise. Shilling experiments with layering and fusing glass to produce beautiful one-off sculptures. Her innovative pieces push the material beyond our usual comfort zones. Glass rods are woven together like fabric, mimicking the flexibility and movement of cloth. The apparent frailty of the glass is balanced by the strong dynamic forms and differing levels of light pick out the various strands making up each unique piece. Cathryn Shilling began her arts career as a graphic designer but went on to study glass after moving to Connecticut with her family. On returning to the UK she studied kiln-formed glass at Kensington and Chelsea College and blown glass with Peter Layton at the London Glassblowing Workshop. She set up studio in London in 2007 from where she has gone on to create a huge body and variety of work. Shilling’s work has been collected and widely exhibited internationally including: Ireland Glass Biennale 2019 at Dublin Castle The 3rd Session of China·Hejian Craft Glass Design & Creation Exhibition and Competition, Ming Shangde Glass Museum, Cangzhou City, Hebei Province, China 2019 TACTILE at Glazenhuis, Lommel, Belgium New Aquisitions 2017 at Glasmuseum Lette, Coesfield, Germany Peter Bremers & Cathryn Shilling: A Two Person Exhibition at Schiepers Gallery in Belgium The CGS Jubileum 20th Anniversary Exhibition at Etienne Gallery, Oisterwijk, Netherlands The Taos Art Glass Invitational New Mexico, USA BODYTALK at the Glasmuseet, Ebletoft, Denmark East-West Artists Exhibitions in Kyoto, Japan and London. She has exhibited at the British Glass Biennale in 2010, 2012, 2015, 2017, 2019 and in 2017 her collaboration with Anthony Scala won the Craft & Design Award. She has twice exhibited as a finalist in the Emerge Juried Kiln-glass Exhibition at Bullseye Projects, Portland, Oregon, USA. In 2013 Shilling won the international Warm Glass Artists Prize and has twice been nominated for the SUWA Garasuno-Sato Glass Prize and several times for the Arts & Crafts Design Award. In 2015 she was number 4 in the Glassation list of ‘The Most Game-Changing Female Glass Artists’ and number 25 in the Graphic Design Hub’s list of ‘The 30 Most Amazing Glass Artists Alive Today’. She was winner of the V&A’s ‘Inspired By’ award for glass in 2009.
