Women’s International Glass Workshop

Private Collections Exhibition

An exhibition of glass works, previously held at the University of Iceland Háskólatorg, titled Private Collections, now showing at the National Waterfront Museum in Swansea, Wales.

The exhibition includes works by CSM glass alumna Helga Reay-Young, as well as Mary Mackey and Sigridur Asgersdottir, both had been speakers at the ‘Glass at Central’ conference held at the Cochrane Theatre in September 2011.


Screen shot 2013-08-14 at 00.08.35

Private Collections is an ensemble exhibition of small works from the Women’s International Glass Workshop. The exhibition was conceived by Icelandic member Sigríður Ásgeirsdóttir and ran for 12 months at the University of Iceland in 2011. Each of the sixteen participating artists contributed a set of intimate pieces of work and by reordering these, a set of sixteen similar, yet unique, collections is created.

‘After an acclaimed show at the University of Iceland in Reykjavik, this beautiful show of glass panels brings the work of women who specialise in architectural glasswork from across the world to Swansea.’

– Andrew Deathe, Gallery Author. 

The Women’s International Glass Workshop is a group of contemporary glass artists. Every two or three years the group meets to exhibit and experience a host country. Meetings have taken place in Iceland, Wales, Ireland, Austria, Japan, Canada, USA, New Zealand and Australia. The group’s touring exhibition Gathering Light in 2008 attracted 60,000 people to the National Waterfront Museum in Swansea.
