At the heart of the International Festival of Glass, the inaugural British Glass Biennale was the most important exhibition of glass in the UK for over ten years; a ground-breaking exhibition displayed in the vast and dramatic shell of one of the area’s most famous glasshouses.
Chosen by a distinguished jury, the exhibition showcased current British makers with all pieces having been made in the last two years and all available to purchase.
