Glass Sellers Award
Our latest talking prompts – more examples demonstrating the versatility of glass. From greener green bottles to glass louvres which control building temperature and a high-precision glass filter developed for the Mars Perseverance Mission.
The Making Your Mark online exhibition will provide an opportunity for students to present exciting works and for designers and artists to show ambitious ideas and make connections with others who are passionate about engraved glass.
You’d really have to be a teacher to fully understand the day-to-day challenges that are being faced in schools, especially now with this extraordinary time of the Corona Virus Pandemic. Assessing need and vulnerability – providing support both to children and parents as they face numerous hardships and dilemmas. The Glass Sellers Charity Fund through its Glass in Society project was delighted to engage with the Brook Special Needs School and learn about how they are coping.
The presentation illustrated their response to the pandemic, including the range of online exhibitions that CGS has hosted. How, as a glass community – they have come together in support of each other including stretching out their “Hands Across the World “to encourage global glass artists to join in a celebration of contemporary glass!
