In a pre-recorded presentation, Professor Andrew Brewerton from Plymouth College of Art talked about his two-decade long and ongoing involvement with studio glass-making in China through his former post of Head of Glass at the University of Wolverhampton. He talked about the history of glass in China since antiquity, the work of Loretta Hui-shan Yang as a glass-maker and promoter of studio glass in China, the development of academic glass programmes at Shanghai University, as well as his commission of Bamboo Scroll, a 4m-high glass and steel sculpture by Colin Reid, for the main entrance hall of the Shanghai Public Library.
