After the darkness
Captured using Fujifilm X100F & TCL and WCL X100 adaptors
'A heating and plumbing engineer who went back to university to pursue his dream of becoming a glass blower has delivered a piece of work for one of the country's top glass museums.
Chris Day studied at University of Wolverhampton, and believes he's the only black glass blower in England.
The 54-year-old, from Lichfield, Staffordshire, has seen his career take off over the last two years.
He now has work on display at six museums, and his latest piece After the Darkness, the Light was unveiled on Friday at Stourbridge Glass Museum during the International Festival of Glass.
His developing reputation in the glass world has been built around his work looking at difficult issues of race and slavery.'
Words by James Bray for BBC West Midlands: Glass-blowing plumber taps into world of colour
In August 2022, I had the privilege of being invited by Chris to capture his commission unveiling.
