UK - Peter Layton - Glass Sellers Prize 2007


Just got this from Peter Layton.

I have just got back to my workshop after 2 nights in London. Yesterday morning all the finalists had to present their work to the judges. We were called in one at a time, gulp, but all went well. The exhibition opened last night with Private Viewing where there were many guests and a fantastic array of snacks and champagne. The winners were announced and although I didn't win the award (will try again next year  ;) ), I learnt a great deal and was delighted to have sold one of my pieces during the evening. This will stay on exhibition alongside my main piece and one other I have there for the duration. My congratulations to Katharine Coleman :hiclp: who won the Engraving award. All the other glass work there was so different, amazing in fact. The other winners works were out of this world! :hiclp:

This exhibition is worth a visit!!

Oh Lesley, commiserations on not winning but many many congratulations on being one of the finalists and selling a piece too, and wishing you lots of luck for next year.  :clap: It sounds like it was a very worthwhile and positive experience (and you got food and champagne too - super!)  8)

Thanks Anne, it is all part of growing up  :D  :chky: I have grown and learnt so much.

Got this for everyone to note:

The Glass Sellers Prize 2007 is an annual prize, which this year has been awarded to Richard Jackson for Triune IV, a courageous and dynamic sculpture in cast glass.

The Glass Sellers Prize for Engraving went to Katharine Coleman for her masterpiece, City Blocks Vase, and the Glass Sellers Student award was given to Ramon Beaskoetxea Sans for Bullfighting, a large installation and a powerful indictment of his country’s cruel sport.

A runners-up prize in the student category was awarded to Hang-Sheun Yeung for her charming, delicate Fish’s Tale.

The exhibition takes place through September to 19th October 2007 at The Glass Art Gallery, London, and includes an exciting array of works by all those shortlisted, as well as past winners. The work covers a broad range of techniques and styles and the majority of pieces on show are for sale.
