Further to my last post about the upcoming Glass Conference, here is Rachel Phillips’ post on the Glass Beacon, which will be officially opened on Friday as part of the one-day conference.
I’ve been involved in a lot of work recently project managing and making a new architectural glass commission, the Glass Beacon, for the home of the glass course in Alexandra Road, Swansea where I also lecture. It’s been a hard task, with a lot of expectation- some I know and some I am less aware of thankfully but, most of all I just wanted to help make a good thing for the glass college. It’s been a collaborative project and working with my colleagues has been great- so many talented and dedicated people.
The final piece of the jigsaw is the official opening next Friday on the 11th March, as part of a day conference. Details can be seen here: Glass Conference
I’m just looking forward to seeing the scaffolding come down and seeing it properly!
