'You Get a Rhythm about it' - Peter Minson; 'Emerging Contemporaries'; '6.30 Sessions' - Nellie Peoples + Michelle Stemm. Craft ACT. On until 19 March.

Peter Minson uses lampworking to create a diverse range of glass objects, from goblets to elaborate candelabra. It is a demanding technique that involves manipulating hot glass over a flame. Minson learnt his lampworking skills in his family factory that produced scientific and medical glass. Later in life he devoted these skills to more artistic ventures.
