BOOM! is a group exclusively for women working with glass. Our aim is to create new opportunities for a feminist platform in our chosen craft. We seek to find new methods for strengthening the glass scene so that the structures and norms of today’s glassmaking tradition cease to apply and a wider understanding of the possibilities that glass offers to the artist is promoted.
As a group we create meeting places where we can share our skills and experience and so provide ourselves with space in which we can grow strong, develop ideas, mount exhibitions and enter into collaborations.
BOOM! is a platform for supporting women and for cooperating on the glass scene.
We see a need for new forums in which women can show their work, collaborate and discuss!
We see a need for greater cooperation rather than regarding each other as competitors in the field!
We see a need to make room for women!
We see a need to change the structures that currently obtain on the glass scene with a feminist methodology and feminist aims!
