"The IFG was indeed a pleasure to be a part of. As a visiting artist from the US, I had to opportunity to meet many British glass artists at the Biennale that I only knew from photos of their work. The addition of other events, especially the play and the fashion show elevated the whole festival above a mere seminar of technique and made it a lasting memory."

Biennale, excellent, wonderful!” Thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing. Food/bar/performance artists and whole feeling of energy - excellent! Exhibition for Biennale stunning!"
