Master Glass Seller’s Commission 2015. Call for Proposals

In October each year, the Worshipful Company of Glass Sellers entertains around 250 Liverymen and Guests at a glittering Banquet at the Mansion House in the heart of the City of London. Traditionally, the Master presents a ‘Favour’ to each guest. So we are looking for proposals from one or more artists to create 250 Favours with a total budget of £3,750.


Through commissioning Favours for the 2015 Banquet, the Master Glass Seller, Gwenllian Rhys, wishes to:

  • promote the wider use of glassmakers to create limited edition pieces to a commercial brief
  • encourage innovation and creativity in design and glass making
  • support British designers and glass makers
  • showcase the best of what British glass design and making can offer
  • present Favours that reflect the theme of her year: Innovate | Communicate • encourage further orders of the Favours

The Glass Sellers’ Company is an influential organisation; so this is a worthwhile commission to win, especially as we will be promoting it extensively in the press.
