Close House Golf Award - Detail of clubs, ball and grass
This beautiful award was commissioned by the TSG group as an award for the Golf Club and Hotel Close House. Weighing in at an impressive 12kg this 48% lead crystal award not only contains casts of golf clubs and balls, but even grass! One additional twist is that the glass is a neodymium glass meaning that it changes colour under different types of light. The images hear illustrate the same award and how the glass changes colour. This project was conceived and project managed by myself in my capacity as Head of Enterprise, Commissioning and the Glass Studio at National Glass Centre, University of Sunderland. The artist responsible for translating the concept into reality was Katya Izabel Filmus. Katya has worked on a number of high profile casting projects with the Glass Centre and is one of the UK's leading glass artists and casters.
