Leo Amery

Glass Works

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Coming from a background of craft-based stained glass, Leo Amery's work makes spectacular strides in a new direction, both in technique and materials.

Leo combines glass with pebbles, bone, feathers, wire and vegetation, which he often collects on walks through the landscape of southwest France where he lives.

His installation the House of Details is a glass structure that explores the nature of perception in autism. It draws directly on his experience of raising a child on the autistic spectrum. A spectacular showpiece, the House of Details alone is worth a trip to the Menier Gallery: with 30 other works on show it makes for an eye-opening and unmissable exhibition.

Leo Amery will be available in the gallery throughout the show.

30% of proceeds will go to CRI 46 a support group for children on the autistic spectrum in France.
