Our yearly retrospective
Publication Call out 2022
The Glass Society of Ireland would like to make you aware of two open calls we currently have for our 2021/2022 Glass Ireland publication.
Glass Ireland, the GSoI’s new format publication, was launched in 2020 and we are thrilled with the wonderful feedback we have received so far. This publication supports the aims of the GSoI: promoting excellence in Irish glass, increasing visibility, advocating for the community, facilitating communication, increasing public appreciation of our craft and developing the international profile of Irish glass. Like earlier issues, it will contain a mix of invited content and open call content, bringing together articles on contemporary practice, profiles of emerging makers, exhibition reviews, historical research and current issues relating to glass.
In line with the GSoI theme for the International Year of Glass, the open call for the forthcoming issue (covering the period July 2021 to May 2022) will be focused on sustainability.
This is not an academic publication. However, we are looking for interesting, critical and well composed pieces. If you feel you need assistance with your contribution for any reason, please highlight this in your submission, it will not count against you in the selection process.
OPEN CALL Sustainable Practice
Have you recently completed an exciting and impactful project which has sustainability at its heart? Do you have an interesting perspective to share in relation to sustainability in the glass sector? We invite you to share your insights as a designer, artist, maker, supplier, historian, researcher or architect. The GSoI are interested to hear about projects including but not limited to:

Publication 2021 and past editions
Once again the GSOI undertook the task of creating a publication which would represent GSOI in a competitive art world, and stand the test of time as an archival document. We would like to extend our thanks to Dr. Fiona Byrne for returning to edit this years publication after the massive success of last years Glass Ireland. We at the GSOI are excited to present the publication to you.
Glass Ireland 2021 includes 18 articles on contemporary glass practice, offering an impressive and diverse range of content including detailed, research-laden essays on historical glass, insightful discussions of contemporary practice, reviews of exhibitions and profiles of emerging glass artists.
The publication aims to represent the broad and diverse practices of glass artists within Ireland and both historical and contemporary developments in glass practices worldwide. We believe we can continue to increase our presence and the presence of our members through circulation of our annual publication.
