Grosseteste in Glass

The first of the Creative Collaboration Seminars took place on Tuesday 31st May at the National Glass Centre, University of Sunderland. Led by Cate Watkinson and Colin Rennie, with Giles and Hannah, members of the Ordered Universe team and staff and students from the National Glass Centre had a fabulous day exploring Grosseteste’s texts on colour, light, sound and the rainbow. We developed a wide range of creative responses to the texts which will be very exciting to take forward: further posts will give more details of these discussions and collaborations. To whet your appetite, as part of the day Colin, with Cate’s assistance, made a piece of glass sculpture in front of our eyes inspired by Grosseteste’s coloured perspicuum. It was an amazing sight to see, and a prelude for what is to come!
