Glass expert Charles Hadjamach chairs this conversation about the early years of the studio glass movement in the UK and Sam Herman’s legacy with artist Karlin Rushbrooke and Paul Woods. Paul was the glass technician at the Royal College of Art from the mid 1960’s and witnessed the birth of the studio glass movement. He assisted numerous illustrious students that passed through the RCA until his retirement 15 years ago. They will have some great stories to tell!
