My essay Glass in the Expanded Field is about to be published in the forthcoming The Glass Reader, published by Bloomsbury Visual Arts.

The Glass Reader is a comprehensive anthology of writing on glass. The Reader brings together foundational writings by key scholars such as David Pye, Glenn Adamson and Richard Sennett and newly-commissioned essays to address glass as a material and practice in art, craft, design and architecture, as well as central critical issues such as technology, gender and sustainability. This carefully-curated selection of texts, from academic sources and journalism as newly commissioned material, is grouped into thematic sections, each with a contextualising introduction by the editors. There is also a comprehensive bibliography to facilitate further reading and research. This book is ideal for arts students, but will also appeal to anyone wishing to gain a broad overview and understanding of the world of glass.

The Glass Reader is edited by Prof Kevin Petrie and Jeffrey Sarmiento.

I am presenting at this years Gravity Lecture series at Sheffield Hallam University. My talk is titled Material as idea / Material as splinter

The Gravity lecture series press release:

'In the 2017/18 academic year the Gravity project will turn its attention and focus on the theme of Material. We will consider the importance artists have given to the use materials, the familiar the strange and the unexpected.

Art and artists have a long heritage of using and manipulating materials. We have witnessed marble being transformed into sinuous life-like sculptures and coloured pigments into pictures displaying illusionary depth. The importance placed on materials and there understanding and use formed the basis of Walter Gropius’s 1922 curriculum for the legendary Bauhaus in Weimar. Materials seems to have pervaded art school teaching but may be seen to have lost ground lately to ideas concepts and different approaches that favour relations over materials.'

Conference presentation in: Elasticity, European League of Institutes of the Arts Academy Conference, Central Saint Martins, London

Studio Inside and Outside is a practice-led investigation of the disciplinary histories, appearances and practices of two educational studio sites: graphic design and fine art. It will explore the material and social qualities of both sites and ask: how the different modalities of use impact on teaching, learning and practice?

Studio inside, Studio outside is a research project developed by James Corazzo (Graphic Design), Dr. Becky Shaw (Reader Fine Art) and Dr. Jerome Harrington (Fine Art) at Sheffield Hallam University.
