AWARD WINNING SHROPSHIRE ART GLASS DESIGNER OPENS GALLERY AT TRENTHAM GARDENS, STOKE ON TRENT

Jonathan Harris, the stylish art glass designer-maker based for many years at the Coalport China Museum, one of the ten Ironbridge Gorge Museums in Shropshire, is expanding and opening a new gallery and showroom at Trentham Gardens, near Stoke on Trent on Friday, 25 August. 

The Silver Leaf Gallery will bring a new world of contemporary, artistic products and high quality design-led giftware to visitors to Trentham, the former historic stately home of the Dukes of Sutherland, which is currently being brought back to life as a major leisure attraction. 

The links between the history of the Ironbridge Gorge and the Sutherlands, great Victorian industrialists, are striking. Jonathan Harris' exquisite art glass can also be seen at the Victoria & Albert Museum Shop and the National Gallery, London in exclusive products inspired by images from specific artists. There is also a further outlet at Weston Park, the 17th century Shropshire stately home near Shifnal.

A stunning new range of glassware called ‘Moorland’, inspired by the Staffordshire Moorlands, has been designed especially for the Silver Leaf Gallery (images available). The design incorporates subtle shades of enamel colours and 24ct gold leaf, layered to create a 3D effect. There is an exclusive limited edition vase available to members of the Jonathan Harris Studio Glass Collectors Club, who can also benefit from discounts on all purchases of glass and giftware. The gallery will be a primary showroom for Jonathan Harris Studio Glass art glass, cameo work and also the range of beautiful new diachronic jewellery.

The Silver Leaf Gallery will be open seven days a week from 10am except Christmas Day. It will also offer design-led home accessories and collectables along with a mail order service and customer loyalty scheme. Special events will be held from-to-time for Collectors Club Members.
