Working with glass was once seen as a largely masculine pursuit due to the hot and heavy labour involved in factory like conditions. Today, we see a reversal of such gendered practice. Shattering the Glass Ceiling showcases the work of over 20 women artists from the National Art Glass Collection including, Kate Baker, Clare Belfrage, Jessica Loughlin, Judi Elliott, Kathy Elliott and Nancy Yu.  It celebrates their exceptional practice, advanced technique and contribution to Australian and international studio glass over the past two decades.
