Teepee Glass show at Ely Stained Glass Museum

12th November 2015 – 15th January 2016
The Stained Glass Museum, The South Triforium, Ely Cathedral, Ely CB7 4DL
Entry to the Exhibition is Free

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 to the Museum.

The exhibition coincides with Ely Cathedral’s prestigious annual Christmas Gift and Food Fair on the 13th  and 14th November 2015 where the Cathedral opens its doors to over 150 exhibitors of which the Museum will be one.

Teepee Glass members are all Central Saint Martins glass alumni and include Andrew Boddington, Maria Fagan, Iain Gutteridge, Brett Manley, Alex R, Pippa Stacey and Wendy Stone.
They all 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. teepeeglass.com.
