This panel was exhibited as part of the ‘Games’ exhibition run jointly in 2012 by the Swansea School of Glass and the British Society of Master Glass Painters. It was selected shown alongside about 50 other panels at the National Waterfront Museum in Swansea.
Games of Old
This piece is based on the idea that play is essential to the human condition, whether it takes the form of classical sporting triumph in the arena or a great game of conkers in the playground.
Games form a large part of our lives, especially in childhood and, whilst they often become organised and ever-so serious as we get older, the ones I really remember as being fabulous were the ones I played when I was young.
