Glass Society lecture season 2019

 

Thursday 27th June:

Dedo von Kerssenbrock-Krosigk:

'Ambivalence: aspects of glass in Ancient Rome and the Middle Ages'

Large beaker, Roman Empire, Syria(?)

1st century AD, H 20.7cm,

Kunstpalas, Dusseldorf, Glasmuseum Hentrich

 The problem with glass seems obvious. On the one hand it is a shining,

beautiful and precious material, and on the other hand it can break very easily.

It is a material that triggers opposing feelings of admiration and fear.

 In presenting a small number of Roman and Medieval written sources, further aspects of the ambivalence of glass will be shown, which offer a richer image of the meaning of this material in the respective periods.

 Dr Von Kerssenbrock-Krosigk is head of the Glasmuseum Hentrich,

Kunstpalas Art Museum, Dusseldorf.
