Glass Exhibition: CAUTION! Fragile
National Museum of Ireland, Monday 12th March - Thursday 31st January 2019
In collaboration with Róisín de Buitléar, Fred Curtis, Eamonn Hartley, and Greg Sullivan, three masters of glass cutting and engraving from Waterford create an exhibition; CAUTION! Fragile, Irish glass – Tradition in Transition. Collectively considered, the work comments on the history and social experience of working in the Waterford Crystal factory and living in Ireland. CAUTION! Fragile not only refers to the delicate nature of glass, but is also an appeal to cherish and respect the long tradition of glass engraving and cutting in Ireland.
Glass swords, bells and musical instruments are included in this diverse and family friendly exhibition. Come and experience glass like you have never seen or heard it before. The exhibition includes original music composed with some of the pieces in the show.
If you are visiting for the weekend or looking for something free to do in Dublin, CAUTION! Fragile, is not to be missed… Bringing Glass into the Light…in ways you've never seen before. Come Visit.
