A major retrospective exhibition of Frank Thrower’s legendary designs for Dartington Glass was held from 2nd – 30th June 2006 at the Plough Arts Centre, Great Torrington in Devon. Consisting of the collection of Dr Graham Cooley, the exhibition opened with a special day of lectures, and a the launch of my ground-breaking book, written with Frank’s daughter Eve. See below for pictures of the glass and the event.
A professionally filmed documentary of Frank’s life and works, produced by Nigel Edwards of Inhouse TV and Graham Cooley, was also filmed during the opening weekend. Including interviews with Frank’s children Eve and Kim, Graham Cooley, Charles Hajdamach, Frank’s colleagues and I, it’s essential viewing for the Dartington Glass fan and 20thC glass enthusiast alike.
