This juried Glass Symposium and Exhibition is open to all glass artists without geographic restrictions.

We also invite students to participate. They represent the many in- house styles and cultural differences from their schools and academies creating the possibility of learning about glass art and design from a global point of view. This also will flow into the workshops set up for children and adults.

Professional artists and students from around the World are invited to come and give demonstrations in their own specialty. This will include glass blowing, casting, pâte de verre, fusing, slumping, bead making, mosaics, stained glass, tiffany, glass painting, sand blasting, grinding, and carving etc. Artists and students working with glass will have the chance to meet and exchange their experience with other glass artists. Lectures and discussions will be followed by a presentation of artworks of the international glass scene.

The public will have possibility to have the contacts with international glass artists, schools and academies and an exchange of professional knowledge on the different glass techniques. This is the possibility to show the public all kinds of capabilities by using glass and creating visual objects. What is the glass in art and architecture?
