Tracy Nicholls. Orphica II (detail)
In 2008 the British Glass Biennale once again awarded a prize for work that was judged by the jury panel to reflect the highest degree of creative imagination and technical achievement in contemporary British glass, and to be the ‘best in show’.
The British Glass Biennale also worked in association with the Worshipful Company of Glass Sellers, to offer a further four prizes.
For the first time in 2008 the public had their say with People’s Prize 2008. The winners received professional support and promotional materials donated by Craftsman craft&design Magazine and Warm Glass UK, sponsors of the event. This support also included features in the Craftsman craft&design Magazine.
