“The Glass Society of Ireland is a must for anyone interested in the history, culture and art of Irish glass and glassmaking, both of contemporary and historical times. It is an all-encompassing forum in which artists, collectors, curators, writers and general enthusiasts for all things glassy can come together on an equal footing and exchange ideas, talent and keep the pace of contemporary glass in Ireland alive and dynamic, in addition to representing those Irish artists working in glass internationally.”
