Description

The LUNA gin glass is the result of a collaboration between Cumbria Crystal and MA / PhD students from the Royal College of Art. Each year Cumbria Crystal develops a design brief, invites selected artists and designers to participate, hosts a three day factory visit with specialist skills training & provides access to resources to help develop prototypes.

The aim of the project is to offer graduates valuable commercial experience and expand the company’s range of collections by introducing an innovative contemporary aesthetic for a younger audience whilst upholding the traditional ethos and values of Cumbria Crystal.

Joshua Kerley studied BA Contemporary Crafts at Falmouth University, graduating in 2011, later returning as a senior technician. In 2017, Joshua received the Charlotte Fraser Scholarship to study MA Ceramics & Glass at the Royal College of Art, graduating in July 2018. Later that year he won the Academic Gold Award at the Emerge Glass Prize and in 2019 exhibited with Bullseye Projects at ‘Collect’, Saatchi & Saatchi Gallery, London. He won the Tiffany & Co. X Outset Studiomakers Prize and was appointed as a lecturer at University for the Creative Arts, Farnham in 2020.
