About Hannah Gibson Glass

Hannah Gibson is an internationally award-winning glass artist and geologist, based near London. Growing up in North Wales at the foothills of Snowdonia, overlooking the Menai Straits, it was easy for Hannah to fall in love with geology. From there Hannah went on to study geology at The University of Edinburgh, where she became fascinated by the intriguing amorphous material of glass. Hannah took her first course in glass at Edinburgh Stained Glass House, before continuing to explore stained glass, fused glass, lampworking then casting. Whilst studying for a Master’s in Glass, Hannah began working on her current series of work Recycling Narratives, Whispering Sweet Nothings. Returning as Artist in Residence, the focus of her research was on materiality. Constantly pushing the boundaries of glass, her work sits at the intersection between art and science. Capturing the nostalgic imagery of childhood, exposing hidden narratives, through cast sculptural glass stands at the core of her work. Passionate about sustainability and recycling, using predominantly recycled glass and found objects, Sweet Nothings are a series of cast glass figures whispering Sweet Nothings to one another. Inviting the viewer to question what are they whispering and why? Hannah won first prize in the Internationally renowned Glass Art Society Exhibition Trace: An Exploration of Sustainable Glass Art 2023, having been shortlisted in 2022. Highly Commended in The International Glass Prize 2022 and 2021. Shortlisted for the Coburg Prize for Contemporary Glass in 2022. Received the Judges Award in The Just Glass Exhibition Recollection: Memories in Glass’ in 2021. Hannah is also recommended by the Homo Faber Guide.
