This summer, the Guild of Glass Engravers will present Making Your Mark, an Instagram and online exhibition of works created by students based in the UK and overseas. Making Your Mark will present the broad range of engraved glass works being created today, highlighting technical achievements and creative flair.
We want to remind people why engraved glass is a much loved craft and inspire people to view, discuss and make engraved glass objects. The online exhibition will be shared on the Guild’s Instagram account: @guildofglassengravers and the website: www.gge.org.uk
Making Your Mark will provide an opportunity to present exciting works and for students to show ambitious ideas and make connections with others who are passionate about engraved glass. The David Peace Prize will be awarded to the student whose submitted work, in the opinion of the judges, shows the greatest talent and originality in the use of engraving on glass.
The decision of the judges will be made from the images submitted. Prizes The first prize will be of £500, the second prize £200. Both prizes include free student membership of The Guild of Glass Engravers for one year. Individuals and collaborations/ groups may apply. Short films of your work and practice of up to two minutes are eligible as well as photography of works.
