INTERNATIONAL glass artists are showcasing their work with an exhibition at the Red House Glass Cone in Wordsley through this spring.

'Great Expectations' features sculptured glass work by artists from the USA and Canada along with home grown talent.

The exhibition includes work by American artist Sharon McJannet, Michelle Lewin from Canada and Charlotte Hughes-Martin, a glassblower and freelance engraver based at the cone.

Cllr Tracy Wood, Dudley's cabinet member for environment and culture, said: "This is a strikingly beautiful exhibition.

"It's remarkable how the artists have all taken the same raw material and come up with pieces which are so different, light and poetic, solid and wry."

The Great Expectations exhibition runs until May 18 at the cone which is open Monday to Sunday from 10am to 4pm and which is free to visit.
