Hidden Gestures by Cathryn Shilling | Solo Exhibition
4th June - 22nd August 2019
After graduating in Graphic Design from the Central School of Art and Design in London, Shilling worked as a Designer until her family’s move to the USA in 2001 prompted her to pursue a new and daring creative direction. Having studied the art & craft of Stained Glass in Connecticut, she returned to London in 2004 and began studying and working with kiln formed glass, as well as becoming a student of blown glass at Peter Layton’s London Glassblowing Studio. In 2009 She set up her own studio in London from where she has gone on to create an impressive & highly varied body of work.
Shilling’s work is shown and represented in collections globally and in 2009 she was the winner of the V&A’s ‘Inspired By’ award for glass. She was listed No 4 in the ‘Glassation’ 2015 list of ‘The Most Game Changing Female Glass Artists’ and No 25 in the Graphic Design Hub’s list of ‘The 30 Most Amazing Glass Artists Alive Today’.
