Temporary, magical, bizarre or enlightening,‘pop up’ installations based inside, and responding to an existing hospital artwork – The Glass Summer House, at St Marys Hospital Manchester, up for a day, or two or more....
The Chandelier Of Lost Earrings will be next, made of all those lonely earrings left in the drawer, that have lost their pair, coming together in a huge beautiful mass participation creation, the chandelier.
We are artists Sagar and Campbell.
This is another part of our work, and also our starting
point as artists, we both trained as stained glass artists and for as long as I
can now remember have taught stained glass and related glass techniques to
Adults, Community groups and School Children.

So we were very excited to be invited onto Kirstie’s show,
to demonstrate and help make a lovely glass fan lamp for the living room.
We run Stained glass weekends at our studio in Manchester,
and are now running a new one day workshop making an Art Deco Fan Lamp, the
course dates and booking info can all be found on our web site, follow links www.sagarandcampbell.co.uk, and
also look at our progress with the Chandelier of Lost Earrings while you are
This was our first experience of being filmed for TV, a fascinating
process, with much preliminary planning and filming giving a few minutes of
fabulous telly! And with the filming
being in the middle of summer in our studio with the window closed (too much
noise from outside) and camera studio lights on, an incredibly hot experience. The
Raise the Roof production team all the way through the process were great,
supportive and much fun, and work incredibly hard, their day seemed too started
at about 5am, and I personally had never seen my studio at 6.30am before!
We would definitely do it again. Unless of course I look
like I’m having a Bad Hair day on the telly tonight!! After having hair cut before filming, I tied
it up (the heat) and for continuity had to leave it up, how vain.
