2022 is the International Year of Glass

In honour of The International Year of Glass, we are delighted to feature two glass artists in our SALA exhibition.

ICOM (International Committee for Museums and Collections of Glass) explains what glass gives to society:

“With its unparalleled versatility and technical capabilities, glass in its many guises has fostered innumerable cultural and scientific advancements.
Our vision of a United Nations International Year of Glass (IYoG2022) is to celebrate the past, present, and future of this transformative material following the United Nations’ goals in Agenda 2030.” 

All Souls’ Church is privileged to be the custodian of five stained glass windows created in the workshop of Morris & Co in England, seven stained-glass windows made by William Bustard in Brisbane and three stained-glass windows created by South Australian artists.  The window designs date from 1863 to 1950. 

Eamonn Vereker and Julie Frahm will display their glass creations beneath the 1920 design of “Peace” by John Henry Dearle, the last artistic designer to head the art department of Morris & Co before it closed in 1940.
