My name is Jeff Zimmer, and I'm a BSMGP member. I wanted to let BSMGP know that my glass paintings won Second Prize at the 2014 Coburg Prize for Contemporary Glass! This European-wide competition and exhibition has been held on an irregular basis, only once every ten years or so.

The pieces, each titled 'The Disconnect Between Action and Consequence (Drone)', are hand enamelled onto multiple layers of flat glass, which give them a palpable sense of 3d. They are mounted behind vintage frames and slotted into a lightbox.

Information about the prize can be found here: http://www.kunstsammlungen-coburg.de/en/europaeisches-glasmuseum-glaspreis-2014.php

And specific information about my pieces can be found here: http://www.kunstsammlungen-coburg.de/downloads/glaspreis-2014-jeff-zimmer.pdf

Also of interest may be the work of Anna Mlasowsky, who developed a method for marbling enamels onto glass in a style similar to marbled paper. http://www.kunstsammlungen-coburg.de/downloads/glaspreis-2014-anna-mlasowsky.pdf

A video of her technique can be found here: http://vimeo.com/78128115

Also BSMGP Fellow Deborah Coombs had a piece in the exhibition.
