The 30th edition of the prestigious and important annual selection of the best works in glass worldwide - New Glass Review (Neues Glas) has been published - and included the work of Scottish glass artist Nichola Burns title 'Tribal in White I & II.

The artwork based on Nichola's study of tribal relationships and identity was selected as part of a 100 glass artwork comprehensive study put out each year by the Corning Museum of Glass. 1,047 individual artists from 44 countries submitted a total of 2,974 images for selection by the judges. The judges for this years review included: renowned glass artists Meike Groot and Dante Marioni along with head of the Rhode Island School of Design glass program, Rachel Berwick, and Corning Museum of Glass 'Tina Oldknow' Curator of Modern Glass, USA.

Works selected were considered 'excellent' from  several view points - such as function, subject matter, aesthetics, and technique.

"There is no shame in making something well. The true challenge lies in creating something thoughtful and original. I am happy to say that New Glass Review30 displays 100 examples that continues to advance the medium, both technically and artistically." - Dante Marioni, Juror
