The Glass Prize 2017

About Us


The Glass Prize has been an annual competition since 2005, run by Warm Glass UK. We support and encourage Contemporary Glass artists, schools and students around the world to share their work. Our commitment is to inspire a wider audience for this medium and support quality education in the glass industry.

Our competition is designed to be inclusive and fair, with several different categories available to enter.  The high quality prizes for the winners reflect the strong standard of entries and we are very grateful to Bullseye Glass Co. who support this competition through ongoing sponsorship.

The Glass Prize is run by Warm Glass UK who have been trading since 2005 and are now the largest UK retailer of quality glass fusing supplies and accessories. Creative and inspiring, their comprehensive range covers everything from Bullseye Glass and CBS dichroic glass, to glass kilns, glass slumping moulds, glass tools, Bullseye frit, glass billets and more. All glass is COE90 compatible.

As the UK’s leading supplier to educational establishments, they are proud to count the Royal College of Art as a customer. Teachers in art and design technology choose them for their reliability and genuine value. Please see their Glass for Schools page for more information.

In 2017, Warm Glass introduced a new venture called Hot Clay with its own dedicated website which aims to be the best resource for those beginning with pottery, offering simple, clear products and advice. Like Warm Glass, Hot Clay delivers all over the UK, Europe and beyond.
