Life in Glass: The Swedish Glass Design of Ernest Gordon Adsetts 1954-1961

March 10 2017 – April 20 2017

Sheffield-born Ernest Gordon Adsetts was a leading figure in the internationally renowned Swedish glass industry at a time when ‘Scandinavian Design' was becoming celebrated the world over. Adsetts designed for internationally renowned Swedish firm Kosta, then subsequently for the Ĺfors glassworks

Were are pleased to bring the exhibition to the David Mellor Design Museum in Hathersage, Derbyshire.

The parallels with David Mellor are striking in that these two Sheffield designers, born just a few years apart, both studied at the Sheffield College of Art, the Royal College of Art, worked on the Festival of Britain, and went on to have a profound influence on modern glass and metalwork the world over.

This is the first exhibition of a designer other than David or Corin Mellor to take place at the David Mellor Design Museum.
