Emerge, a biennial juried competition, recognizes the efforts of students, early-career artists, and artists from other media who have recently turned to kiln-glass. Selected from 370 entries, the forty-five finalists – representing 16 countries – were evaluated on their creativity, craftsmanship, and design by a panel of three jurors.
Evolve, now in its third iteration, highlights the work of previous Emerge finalists and award winners who continue to advance the conceptual, technical, and aesthetic scope of their practice. Artists like Rei Chikaoka (Emerge 2010, 2014), who has increased his technical ability, shifting from more traditional cast forms into spiraling sculptural works that push the limits of the material, plus many more.
