London Glassblowing is greatly privileged to be holding a memorial exhibition of works by the late Karen Lawrence. A bright star who shone all too briefly, Karen sadly died in October 2013 after a prolonged battle with cancer. She was a joyful and optimistic presence, at once serious, questing, passionate, playful and charming.
A pioneering glass artist, Karen developed groundbreaking techniques for making and colouring stunning kiln formed vessels, sculptures and architectural panels. By fusing and slumping careful arrangements of finely drawn strands combined with specially prepared frits, she was able to construct exquisite, deceptively delicate forms and achieve effects reminiscent of ice crystals and snowflakes.
All works in the exhibition are for sale.
Exhibit takes place 12 February 2016 - 27 February 2016 at:
London Glassblowing, 62-66 Bermondsey Street, London, SE1 3UD
