Friday 12th September

Plenary Session
Presidential address -Vitreous Inspirations

David Martlew

Being a (somewhat random) meditation upon Glass, that most alluring state of matter, and the impact it has had on diverse creative people.

David Martlew is a glass technologist who after over forty years working in the flat glass industry is now retired and therefore free to pursue interests in the area of the history and heritage of glass and glassmaking.   An early inspiration for this interest was provided by Victorian stained glass windows in which a certain choir boy found refuge from dull sermons.
