NEW DAWN             

New Dawn is a contemporary sculpture by Mary Branson commemoration the campaign that led to women getting the vote in 1928. It was unveiled at the Houses of Parliament on 7th June. Mary called on Adam Aaronson, our Gallery glass artist, to help turn the glass element of her concept into reality.

Adam created 168 hand blown coloured glass discs inspired by the scrolls in the Act Room, where acts of parliament are stored. For more information follow the links on Adam’s page.
