Ian Chadwick – ‘Medicine for Garmonbozia (Glass Charger Index 1902)

Since winning the Worshipful Company of Glass Sellers of London, Arts and Crafts Prize in August 2019 at the British Glass Biennale 2019, Ruskin Mill, Stourbridge, I have been kept very busy.

I travelled to the USA twice as a visiting artist to private glass studios in New Jersey and Florida. I was fortunate enough to make time  for a glass pilgrimage to the wonderful Corning Museum of Glass in upstate New York along with a visit to various other galleries.

I was honoured to have my piece ‘Singularity’ included in the exhibition ‘The Best of British Glass’ at Vessel Gallery in London.

I have also been interviewed for Glass Art Magazine for a future feature on my work and interviewed by Patricia van Acker of The Design Trust in collaboration with the Contemporary Glass Society as part of their online business and marketing workshop.

Alongside this I have been busy making new work for galleries and exhibitions whilst experimenting with new techniques using equipment purchased using the prize money from my award.

Bruno Romanelli, ‘Misam’

The piece that was awarded a prize by Worshipful Company of Glass Sellers of London, Arts and Crafts Runner Up Prize in August 2019 at the British Glass Biennale 2019 was the piece bought by Habatat Galleries for the Imagine Museum in Florida. I’m really delighted to have a piece in the collection.

Since the Banquet, I have been showing work in several exhibitions and Art Fairs.

There is a show now in Taipei which was due to move to Shanghai for part II of the exhibition in April, but the CV-19 has delayed that now until the autumn.

I’ve shown with London Glassblowing at Collect Art Fair at Somerset House and more recently at TEFAF in Maastricht with Adrian Sassoon, though this fair was cut short by the virus.
