004 - The Virtual Village Show - Fused Glass Dish Entries
Below are the three beautiful fused glass dished, designed by Nieve, Helen and Fiona, and made Oriel Hicks our Island Maker glass expert.
These dishes have been packaged up and posted out to the designers.
The winner of the Junior section is the 'Dolphin' design. Oriel commented " What a lovely, simple and striking design this is! The dolphin could be done with opaque white fine frit, covered with grey, laid onto a sheet of clear glass and the other colours could go underneath". The Artwork below, and is stunning.
The first prize for the adult section was awarded to the 'lighthouse' design. Oriel is a fan of St Agnes and felt the designer, "really "got" the keep it simple message and it has worked" adding "Well done... I love it."
Oriel loved the idea of using sesame seeds to depict frit, on the 'Porthcressa' entry and commented, "very inventive! You really thought about how it was going to be made", and for this reason it came a very close second, so Oriel decided to make a slightly smaller dish of this design.
