James Maskrey: Histories

The main focus of Histories is Captain Scott’s polar expedition and Sir Ernest Shackleton’s Voyage in Endurance; a voyage from 1914 - 1917 that is curently celebrating its centenary. These Antarctic journeys are investigated in individual pieces or collections of curiosities and the narrative is both real and imagined to create a visual history revealed through James Maskrey’s powerful field of vision. These sensitive, beautifully crafted stories in glass, both playful and profound and technically brilliant, make beautiful objects which speak to us of our fragile world.

James Maskrey has specialised in hot glass making over the course of 20 years and currently teaches at the National Glass Centre in Sunderland.
