A Fine Line

Katharine Coleman

30 Oct 2019 - 26 Nov 2019

Katharine Coleman presents her solo exhibition A Fine Line, featuring eleven new works inspired by the many locations Katharine has visited to teach glass engraving over the past decade; from Upstate New York to Beijing and back home again. Each example is a personal memory of the place and her own art journey, which has since the 1980s been dedicated to glass engraving. Also included in the exhibition are three works from the late 2000s from the Larry Brown Collection.

This exhibition is particularly special as it not only marks the artist’s 70th year but is also her last solo exhibition. Katharine is an astute planner as well as a consummate professional and she has planned her retirement with meticulous attention to detail. This does not mean that her career ends here, far from it – she currently has a four year lease on her London studio (a brisk 30 minute walk from her home in central London) and enough ‘blanks’ blown by Andy Potter of Peter Morgan Glass to continue making new work for her remaining time in the studio, as well as continuing to teach glass engraving in London and abroad.

Now considered one of the UK’s outstanding craftsman, Katharine was awarded an MBE for services to glass engraving in 2009. She was elected an Honorary Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Glass Sellers of London and a Freeman of the City of London in June 2015.
