The aim of this year’s IGS had been from the start not only to become a meeting event of glass professionals, and to attract the public as well. Its goal was to prove to the world that the phenomenon of Czech Glass is still alive. On Saturday 6th October, the symposium visitors therefore had a great opportunity to observe seventy glass artists and craftsmen at work in the glass-works and workshops owned and run by the organizing and partnership entities.
The climax of the eleventh year of the International Glass Symposium came with the official Sunday exhibition opening at the Glass Museum of Novy Borshowing the artifacts created during the IGS. http://igsymposium.cz/aktualne-en
