An up and coming sculptor is bringing light to Chester Cathedral this January.

Jack Sawbridge's exhibition Tension,  Resonance and Light features seven dramatic sculptures that are made from polished wood, blown glass and musical strings.

The sculptures will take up residence in the cathedral cloisters  until the end of the month and entry to the exhibition will be free of charge.

Jack, who originally trained as  an architect, is able to construct  his geometric devices by shaping  wood, blown glass and musical  strings into dynamic, interactive  systems.

 

He has developed a number of unique techniques that enable him to encase illuminated, blown glass vessels in polished, wooden  structures.

Heritage and exhibition manager Nick Fry, said: “We are  thrilled to welcome Jack’s exhibition.  The sculptures he is bringing to the cathedral are fascinating and beautiful.  This kind of  solo show is a first for us – and we  are sure visitors will love it.  It  will be very special to see these  impressive structures in the context of the cathedral’s medieval  cloisters”.

The exhibition opens on January 9.
