British Glass Biennale 2012 ‘People’s Prize’ award

Not a Wave an Oceanvessel!

Perhaps the most important contemporary glass exhibition in the UK has just finished.

Held every two years the Glass Biennale  is a chance for the public to see what the glass artists of Britain are up to. Sadly I couldn’t make the opening but I am delighted to find I have been given joint first place for the ‘Peoples Prize’

Over the course of the exhibition visitors were given the opportunity to vote for a work they liked best at the show. Matt Hayes and myself were equally given the most votes. Louis Thompson won ‘Best in Show’. A talented glass maker I got the chance to meet Louis and work with him at the London Glassblowing Studio demo I took part in for ‘Winners’ in May. He is one to watch.
