French Young Creation Glass Prize

In this special year, artists need support more than ever. This is the reason why the Community of Communes Carmausin-Ségala has decided to maintain the Prize for young French glass creation, which consists of a competition open to creators using glass and who have graduated for less than 10 years.

The third Prize has been launched ! In 2022, it will reward a glass artist or a collective who will receive a grant of 5,000 euros to carry out the winning project.

The final work will be presented at the next edition of the Biennale des Verriers in Carmaux in October 2023.

Young glass creation award 2020 - Anaïs DUNN - "Tension paysage"

In this special year, artists need support more than ever. This is the reason why the Community of Communes Carmausin-Ségala has decided to maintain the Prize for young French glass creation, which consists of a competition open to creators using glass and who have graduated for less than 10 years.

A jury of specialists therefore chose Anaïs Dunn’s project, "Landscape tension". Trained first in metal sculpture, the 36-year-old visual artist is not limited to one material in particular. If glass has been one of his means of expression since his apprenticeship at the Haute Ecole des Arts du Rhin in Strasbourg and then in Edinburgh, his plastic approach includes noble materials (metal, glass, wood, earth) but also poor materials ( plastic tarpaulin, survival blanket, recovery materials) through the elements (water, air) ...
Concerned about environmental issues, Anaïs Dunn develops her work around the transformation of matter and landscapes, from the melting of glaciers to mass tourism. After several residencies, group and personal exhibitions, after several sculptures addressing pollution, the relationship to resources, after sending a sculpture into the atmosphere, Anaïs Dunn imagined with "Landscape tension" a glass installation accompanied by an infrasound system: blown glass modules will be set into vibration by these infrasounds, based on seismic data from Antarctica, thus creating a unique resonance, an uncomfortable soundscape, summing up the current climate of the world.

The final work will be presented at the next edition of the Biennale des Verriers in Carmaux in October 2021. The different stages of the production will be discovered here and on our social networks, throughout the year.

Glass award 2018 - Philippe Garenc

Launched in 2018 by the Carmaux Glass Museum, the Young French Glass Creation Prize has just been awarded to Philippe Garenc for his creation project «Invisible City (s)». The laureate will receive a grant of 5000 euros to carry out his work, which will be presented at the Biennial of Glass in 2019.

On July 5th, the jury members of the Young French Glass Creation Prize examined the 15 applications received by the Museum. The representatives of the main institutions in the field of glass were present:Jean-Luc Olivié from Musée des Arts Décoratifs (Paris), Isabelle Reiher from CIRVA (Marseille), Eric Louet from the Conches-en-Ouche Glass Museum, Anne Vanlatum from MusVerre (Sars-Poteries), Yann Grienenberger from CIAV (Meisenthal), Yan Zoritchak, glass artist, and Laurent Subra, Carmaux Glass Museum’s director.
Philippe Garenc’s project, «Invisible City (s)», was unanimously selected. Visual artist graduated from CERFAV (European Center for Research and Training in Glass Arts) in Vannes-le-Châtel, where he now teaches, he is also responsible for Glass Fablab. Since 2009, Philippe Garenc’s plastic research has focused on digital creation and glass, or how digital modeling and 3D printing can integrate the constraints of glass material. In his project, he imagines miniature architectures whose precision is made possible by the digital tool, beyond what is possible to achieve by hand. An imaginary micro-city, inspired by the ancient architectural forms, but also in homage to the utopian forms of the cities described in the book of Italo Calvino.
Philippe Garenc has a year to realize his project. The result will be presented at the next edition of the Biennale of Glass in Carmaux in October 2019. The different stages of the realization will be found on the website of the Museum.
