Price: £5.00 + 95p eventbrite booking fee (Friends: £4.00 + 95p eventbrite booking fee)
Location: OnlineIn the Light of Modernity – online webinar with award-winning glass artist Mel Howse.

Join us to hear about contemporary glasswork for architecture, both secular and ecclesiastical.

Mel Howse is an award-winning artist, designer and maker of public art commissions. She works primarily in the mediums of glass and metal. Mel’s portfolio embraces art that is integral to exterior and interior architecture, and to the sense of place. Her design style is progressive, innovative, and intentionally utilises contemporary industrial techniques.

Mel’s approach to her work is to continually re-evaluate the opportunities offered by the materials in her chosen medium. She is a

fervent believer in the merits of being both the designer and the maker, and pursues this principle so as to sustain and fulfil the purpose of her art.

Over the course of 25 years Mel has completed a diverse range of

commissions, including most notably: 500sqm art glass façade for retailer J Sainsbury's in Central Milton Keynes; the Huddleston Memorial Window at Lancing College Chapel on the theme of apartheid and dedicated by Archbishop Desmond Tutu; the Art Bath in cast iron and fired enamel; and public art for developer Clarion for a mixed-use Brighton development by architect Conran and Partners, with awards for both the development and the art.

In 2019 she installed The Illumination Window at Durham Cathedral, which resides in the north quire aisle alongside the Shrine of St Cuthbert. Buy Tickets (eventbrite)
