Josephine Harris (1931-2020) was inspired by an exhibition of engraved glass to learn this craft, at which she excelled, creating decorative and humorous pieces, that convey strong messages about things she valued in life. In her turn, she inspired and taught another generation of glass engravers. It is rare to be able to see work of this kind and quality, and the exhibition, called ‘And then the heav’n espy’ from George Herbert’s poem about glass as a metaphor for seeing deeply into things, also includes examples of her watercolours, drawings and prints.
