An exhibition of contemporary glass and ceramics by Alice Antliff, Bethany Antliff and Renovat Moody

A collection of works inspired by the natural world with a consideration for man’s impact through global warming and marine pollution by three recent graduates of Plymouth College of Art. The artists aim to raise funds to set up their own energy-efficient glassblowing and ceramics studio with space and equipment for artists to rent, and offering taught courses in glass, ceramics and engraving. They will also donate a percentage of their sales to Devon Wildlife Trust.

Opening View: Tuesday 19 March, 6 - 8 pm

Born in Burundi in the heart of Africa, Renovat Destiny Itangishaka Moody's cultural heritage has a strong influence on his work in blown glass. Now a British citizen, when he sells work he sends half of the proceeds back to Burundi to buy cows which live on his family land, and he plans to breed cattle on a larger scale and to donate some of the milk yield and harvest produce to local people in an attempt to alleviate poverty. 

Representing the delicate qualities of plants and flowers Alice Antliff's ceramic and glass works are fragile and intricate. Not only are they beautiful -  for Alice they also make the world go round. She addresses environmental issues of global warming, marine pollution, deforestation and bee decline through her work. Showing that there is still hope for the future if we all work together to put an end to destructive behaviours, she uses recycled and upcycled materials whenever possible in her work. 

Bethany Antliff has developed a language with a multitude of materials, her concern and questioning for human consumption and the damage it causes to inspirational habitats and ecosystems an inherent part of her work. Combining glass and ceramic she explores the symbiotic relationships of lichen on land and coral in the ocean, aiming to inspire appreciation and consideration for the natural world.
