13th International Glass Symposium -,,IGS”
Nový Bor Czech Republic
The International Glass Symposium IGS was first held in 1982. The Glassworks Crystalex in Novy Bor invited artists and designers from all over the world to realize their ideas with the assistance of local glass makers. Since then, once every three years, the top glass artists get together and work in the hot and cold workshops together with the glass makers, before amateur and professional public, to demonstrate their art. Over years, hundreds of artists participated. The International Glass Symposium became a world unique and prestigious event, a meeting place and a symbol of creativity and of new possibilities in the world of glass.
