There is less than a month to go until the entry period for the Warm Glass UK Glass Prize 2012 comes to an end and already the competition is looking pretty stiff.
ARTS THREAD has already spotted some fantastic entries which have been put on the Warm Glass website including Celina Szelejewska’s Zodiac piece which draws inspiration from old maps of the constellations and Charlotte Clark’s beautiful The Coast is Always Changing.
Sarah Christine Upton’s entry is made from dozens of individually placed glass droplets which evoke the movement of water while Désirée Sessegolo has experimented with a unique cellular glass fusing technique for her piece.
Unlike previous competitions, there is no set theme for entrants. Instead, this year’s brief is to design and make a piece of contemporary kiln glass. Each entrant will have their work displayed on the Warm Glass UK website.
Prizes are available in the following three categories: Artist’s prize, which is open to all glass artists, Student’s prize and the Bullseye Glass prize which goes to entrants who submit a piece of work made entirely out of Bullseye Glass.
The Artist’s and Bullseye Glass prize winners will be decided by independent judges while the Student winner will be determined by a public vote.

Entry deadline is 20 March 2012.
