‘Apollo’ Fabrication Stage Underway

Earlier this week some of our Apollo Sponsors visited Devereux and Huskie Glassworks in rural Wiltshire, with artist and Apollo designer Luke Jerram.

Jerram captured the following video of the day, saying “The sound-wave sculpture, entitled Apollo (for the Greek God of music), will consist of approximately 100 hand-blown coloured glass roundels fused together to represent the rotated sound wave of the opening section of Philip Glass’ Etude No 2.

“This dizzying film shows what happens when you attach a GoPro to a glassblowers punty. You also end up with a melted camera!”
