Speaker: Richard P. Golding
Title: A Lifetime in Glass: The Story of Okra and Station Glass
About the event: We are delighted that master glass maker Richard Golding will be giving an audiovisual presentation and glass making demonstration in collaboration with Timothy Harris. Richard founded Okra Glass with partner Nichola Osborne in 1979 and then went on to set up Station Glass in 2010. He retired in 2018. His work is avidly collected worldwide and can be found in important public collections too, including our museum. Richard is one of the leading exponents of surface decorated studio glass, particularly iridescent glass. Richard will be showing some pieces from his private collection and will offer some items for sale on the day.
