2023 Stevens Competition invites designs for City of London glass panels
For the last 50 years, the Worshipful Company of Glaziers and Painters of Glass (the Glaziers’ Company) has run the Stevens Competition to find the Architectural Glass Artist of the Year.
The purpose of the award is to allow aspiring architectural glass designers and craftspeople to develop a design, have it assessed by experts in the field, and compete for a range of prizes.
One contestant may be chosen to work on the development of their design prior to its fabrication and installation.
The 2023 Stevens Competition runs in co-operation with the Mercers’ Company. The Mercers’ Company wishes to procure the design for two architectural glass panels which will provide a focal point to the reception area for a large, high quality development it is constructing in the City of London.
The competition seeks to identify and encourage new and up-and-coming talented people of all ages, who are early in their career or vocation. It is open to designers and architects who have commenced their training and vocation in glass during or after 2012.
A full range of architectural glass solutions can be offered to reflect the Mercers’ vision of the past and future expressed in figurative or abstract form.
Designs are to be submitted by 12 January 2023.
