We are proud to present the second edition of the International Glass Prize (IGP2), a triennial competition for arts, design and crafts.
This project is an initiative of the Private Foundation Charlotte van der Seijs and is organized by the glass museum GlazenHuis in Lommel, Belgium.
The jury will award EUR 12,000 of prize money and two residency periods in the studios of the GlazenHuis. This edition's theme is: THE PROCESS.
The late Charlotte J. van der Seijs (1937-2007) was a proud resident of Lommel. When she died she left a fortune to a private foundation for the benefit of the Lommel GlazenHuis. The Dutch Charlotte J. van der Seijs was born in Utrecht on 27 December 1937 and after living in Amsterdam (NL), Barcelona (SP) and Brasschaat (BE) she came to live in Lommel in 1999.
