Celebration at The Dorchester

9th December 2013

Celebration at The Dorchester
In honour of the SBID international Awards Ceremony 2013 at The Dorchester Hotel, art glass specialists Vessel Gallery, have been asked to curate an exclusive exhibition of exquisite centre pieces.

All artworks have been created by hand for the occasion, in an exemplary array of glass techniques by some of the best studio artists and designers currently working within the UK. Their collective achievements bring together one of the largest independent glass displays shown this year. The criteria for all those invited to participate, was essentially to have a British connection. Either having trained in the UK or currently living here, ultimately Vessel Gallery’s objective is to shine a spot light on the unprecedented technical expertise, design and innovation in contemporary glass making, from the very best of Britain’s talents, producing master pieces that are collected worldwide.

Vessel Gallery are very proud to collaborate with SBID and curate this highly anticipated series of masterpieces for the most prestigious event in the Design Industry’s calendar, right here in the heart of London, the creative capital of the world. Following this exclusive launch all pieces will be exhibited at Vessel Gallery until the 31st December 2013.
