The British Glass Biennale was held at the Ruskin Glass Centre, Stourbridge from 25th August to 9th September 2017. The Biennale is the UK's leading exhibition of excellence in contemporary glass by British artists, designers and craftspeople and is the flagship show within the International Festival of Glass. With an expert jury and an open call to artists, the British Glass Biennale is one of the most significant statements of national glass talent.

The 2017 exhibition featured work by 63 contemporary artists, including British makers living and working abroad for the first time. Since its inception in 2004, the Biennale has awarded £100,000 worth of prizes to artists.

Warm Glass are once again delighted to be associated with this prestigious event as sponsor of the Warm Glass UK People's Prize which offered visitors the opportunity to vote for their favourite piece throughout the duration of the exhibition. The winner was the artist with the most votes at the closing ceremony of the event on September 9th and won Warm Glass UK vouchers worth £250.
