Congratulations to our winners and all the artists who put their work into the Easter Show. The Judges commented on the high calibre of the entries and we had all five glass working techniques covered – casting, blowing, fusing and slumping, flamwork and lead lighting. The pictures below were taken at the exhibition showing the six winning pieces followed by the members who gained merit awards. Check out our Facebook page to see more.
