XIV IGS International Glass Symposium
Nový Bor, Czech Republic
Motto: Glass without boundaries
For the third time, glass artist Barbara Nanning has been invited as an artist to participate in the IGS International Glass Symposium in Novy-Bor 2021. In 2012 as a guest at the Slavia glassworks and in 2018 and now in 2021 as a guest at the AZ-Design from the master glasscutter Aleš Zvěřina.
The International Glass Symposium (hereinafter referred to as IGS) is one of the world’s most important meetings in the field of studio glass. It is also an event with a long and famous history. The founding of IGS dates to 1982. That year, glass icons from what was then Czechoslovakia, and from abroad, met at Crystalex glassworks in Nový Bor for the first time. It was still at a time when state borders were closed to visitors from the West. Despite the difficult conditions, the fought-out meeting took place in great euphoria and brought about extensive cooperation that no political restrictions at the time could prevent. The symposium has since been repeated at regular three-year intervals. During its existence, it has hosted several hundred artists from all continents. From the very beginning, a much wider community than just the glassmakers themselves has contributed to the great results of the symposium and its atmosphere: representation and citizens of Nový Bor, glass experts, observers, gallerists, collectors, curators and publicists from all over the world. Nový Bor, a town in northern Bohemia, and its surroundings are historically one of the most important European centers of glass production. At present, over one hundred and twenty glass companies and workshops operate here, offering a whole range of traditional and modern technologies of hot and cold glass production – from mechanical production, manual work in glassworks to a wide range of refining techniques. In 2021, from September 30 to October 3, the glass world will meet for the fourteenth time at the IGS in Nový Bor. The invitation is valid for fifty Czech and foreign glass artists, or artists from other fields, including several product designers who have recently created significant works, come up with new forms of expression or achieved extraordinary mastery in the field of arts and crafts. Invited participants are at different stages of their careers, and belong to different generations, however they always profile themselves as “trend-setters”, i.e. as those who enrich current authorial work with new forms of work and even inspire new trends. At the symposium, they can present or develop their ideas and professional skills and to enrich the experiences of others in feedback. The development of authorial work and cooperation are thus the main goal of IGS in 2021.

For over forty years, Barbara Nanning has been an internationally renowned artist with works in numerous public and private collections around the world. Describing herself as a ‘three dimensional designer’, the Dutch artist quickly gained global recognition for her unique vessels and sculptures.
After graduating from the renowned Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam (The Netherlands), Nanning started out her career as a ceramicist. She introduced to the medium vivid colours that had only previously been possible in painting and gave an unexpected, almost unreal dimension to her work. Nevertheless, Nanning soon took the surprising step of adding glass to her repertoire — the material on which she would eventually focus exclusively. Experimenting with pate de verre, glass blowing, and metal gilding, she fuses different worlds into an entirely personal visual language.
Nature, both organic and inorganic, is a constant source of inspiration for Nanning. She studies multifaceted crystals, soft jellyfishes, flowers and micro-organisms with a particular fascination with form, structure and geometry. Her constant thirst for new challenges has led Nanning to Novy Bor in the Czech Republic. There she enjoys the support of the most talented glassblowers and polishers, but above all the possibility of employing colour in a totally new way. In Novy Bor, Nanning has lobed forms blown, which are then sawn up, ground and polished.
Barbara Nanning combines tradition with innovation, Eastern opulence with Dutch austereness, freedom with structure and reason with emotion. Her work is a fusion of classical artisan methods and innovative materials. As a result, her language does not comply with an existing one, but forms a universe all of its own.
