Michael Petry: In the Realm of the Gods

Home Event Michael Petry: In the Realm of the Gods
Free Exhibition- Davidson Ballroom Gallery
In the Realm of the Gods explores the ley lines hidden beneath the city of Bath since the time of the Ancient Britons. Artist Michael Petry has created a newly commissioned glass ley line, to be shown alongside works exploring the mythical and mythological connections to the Holburne’s collection and place, and his own place within it.

The production of this new commission has been carried out in collaboration with Plymouth College of Art. Students there worked with Michael Petry to carry out the production of the ley line in glass, casting and moulding test-pieces and then creating each segment which makes up the final piece. The ley line has been made using casting sand. The cold work (cutting and polishing) was carried out by glassmaker Fiaz Elson, who is based in Stroud.
