Responsible for initiating the Glass and Ceramics course at Sunderland University, he was also a former treasurer and secretary of British Artists in Glass.
“My work is mostly in glass or in glass combined with other materials, particularly stone….. Those in Grizedale Forest are over 3 metres tall.
Bray is the author of “A Dictionary of Glass” published by A & C Black and by the University of Pennsylvania.
His other works in Grizedale are Light Columns 2 and 3 (1995). Being mixed media works combining glass with stone and other materials by an artist who has been so influential in the glass world, I find them particularly interesting.
