Open Call: Glass Ireland 2023

The theme of the 2023 edition of Glass Ireland, which covers the period July 2022 to June 2023, is Materiality.

Proposals may include makers who defy the expectations of their material or challenge us to look at glass in new and unexpected ways; opportunities that arise from a closeness to material; material as memory or perhaps materialism. We would like to welcome Frances McDonald as the new editor of Glass Ireland. Please see our Publication page for more details.
