Win glass artworks in CGS annual fundraising raffle

A fantastic, colourful sculpture made by Chris Day is among the prizes on offer in the Contemporary Glass Society’s (CGS) annual raffle. This and 12 other glass artworks have been donated by glass artists to help raise money for the organisation’s events in 2024.

As well as Chris Day’s piece, the donated pieces have been supplied by Hannah Gibson, Tracy Nicholls, Emmy Palmer, Jessie Lee, Pippa Stacey, Gail Turbutt, Sue Sinclair, Jane Littlefield, Jude Stark, Angela Brady, Christina Dembinska and Zihao Xiong.

Apart from Chris Day’s magnificent piece, the works have been donated from the Razzle Dazzle exhibition held at the Pyramid Gallery in York, so every one sparkles.

Funds raised will help CGS participate in the 2024 International Festival of Glass (IFoG), which will be the last one in its present format before the Glass Art Society takes the reins for the 2026 event.

Each year CGS members create postcard-sized glass art panels in a variety of styles and techniques on a theme chosen by the CGS board for display at the IFoG. For 2024, to mark the final IFoG with the current organisers, the theme will be ‘Thanks for the Memory’. More details of the exhibition will be circulated to CGS members in due course.

All raffle tickets are £2 each, available in books of five. The draw will take place on Sunday 2 December 2023, just in time for Christmas.

Raffle tickets will be circulated to CGS members with their Glass Network print magazine in November. Non-members are welcome to buy tickets too. Request tickets or find out more by email to Pam Reekie via: or tel: 01379 741120. Money can be paid through PayPal to .
