Final winners announced at British Glass Biennale

While most of the awards at this year’s British Glass Biennale were announced previously, a few had to wait until the end of the event.

Sandra Young was the winner of the Young Collectors’ Award, sponsored by the Worshipful Company of Glass Sellers, for her flameworked piece, ‘World Dragon’.

In addition, Theo won Robbie the Raven in the Young Collector’s Award raffle. Robbie the Raven was blown by Stewart Hearn and awarded by Barbara Beadman, Master of the Worshipful Company of Glass Sellers, which sponsored the award. Theo and hundreds of other children voted for Sandra Young’s ‘World Dragon’.
