We’ve had a note from National Art Glass Gallery curator Michael Scarrone (one of our all-time fave blokes) that he’s once again set up a blog to enable us all to follow her progress at Northlands. Says Michael…

The National Student Art Glass Prize is a competition established to reward and promote innovation and excellence in contemporary glass within the student sector. This exciting biennial competition is an initiative of the Wagga Wagga Art Gallery. Sarah Humphrey is the winner of the 2014 National Student Art Glass Prize for her work titled ‘A Giocherellare’ – a cello and a violin, cast in glass. Sarah was awarded an all-expenses-paid trip to attend master classes at North Lands Creative Glass in Scotland, one of the world’s most renowned centres for the practice and development of art glass. Stay tuned and follow Sarah on her journey…
