BRITISH GLASS BIENNALE – ARTISTS ANNOUNCED!

The Ruskin Mill Land Trust, in association with the Worshipful Company of Glass Sellers, is delighted to announce the artists for the 2019 British Glass Biennale exhibition. Over two days an expert panel of judges chaired by Róisín de Buitléar and comprising of Dr Jane Cook, Monica Guggisberg, Angel Monzon, and Cathy Shankland, selected the very best of this year’s entries, all of which achieved a very high standard.

“The field of applications for the British Glass Biennale were of a very high standard this year which made the process of judging extremely difficult, but that is how it should be. Through their collective wisdom, knowledge and experience they made a fantastic selection for this years’ Biennale.
