    Default Lifeforms 2016!!!

    It is now official. There will be another "Lifeforms!" exhibition in two years. We are going to do this again!

    The 2016 show will open at the Pittsburgh Glass Center in March of 2016, then move to a venue in Corning, NY in time for the GAS Conference in June. There will likely be other venues after that, but those two are for sure. Stay tuned for entry information. The new web site, facebook, and instagram pages should be up and running in another couple of months.

    Deadline for entry: December 10, 2015.
    For more information about the jury, the timeline, the previous iteration of Lifeforms and to register and submit, visit www.glasslifeform.org

    "Lifeforms 2016" is intended to be an exhibition of the best biological glass models made in the spirit of the famous 19th and 20th century models of invertebrates and plants made by the father and son team, Rudolf and Leopold Blaschka for the Harvard University’s Botanical Museum. Models are mandated to be of specific species and rendered as accurately as possible, but artistic presentation and creative contexts are strongly encouraged. Artists working in any glass technique (flameworking, glassblowing, pâte de verre, etc,) are invited to submit an entry (one per artist or collaborative team.) The judging criteria will be based on accuracy in representing the organism, aesthetic beauty, presentation, and originality.

    Types of Biology acceptable:

    Botany models may consist of any recognized plant species. They may be a life-size reproduction or a proportionally scaled (larger or smaller) model. Magnified plant parts may also be included as part of the work or as an individual entry.

    Zoology models may include any recognized invertebrate or vertebrate species, including insects and birds. Skeletons or other anatomical features, in part or whole, life-size or proportionally scaled, may also be individually represented.

    Scaled models of microorganisms are also acceptable and can include microscopic plants (such as algae), animals (as plankton), fungi, lichens, diatoms, bacteria, and so on.

    Deadline for entry: December 10, 2015.
