History talk: Meet the Designers

September 11 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

This talk describes how art and design developed in glassware. The elements of good design are functional, practical, ergonomic, aesthetically pleasing and affordable. and good designers lead fashion;  making objects that are both desirable and collectable.

Starting 2500 years BC with the glass beads found in Egypt and Assyria, we progress through Roman times, Medieval glass, the glass-makers of Murano and the influence of ‘facon-de-Venise’. In England, George Ravenscroft revolutionized glassware with the development of lead crystal. We follow the development of fashion in glassware into the modern era and introduce you to some of the 20th Century designers, both in house and commissioned who made sure that Stuart Crystal Products were both desirable and at the forefront of fashion.
