Panel 9 Detail






‘The first major piece of work about 9/11 that I’ve seen.’


‘This should last for 400 years and more.’


‘To achieve such subtle detail with sandblasting is incredible.’


The opening ceremony was held at the Cone on the Friday evening saw the 30 metre high structure illuminated, with speeches, events, demonstrations, food and fireworks.

The story of the famous Portland Vase was retold at the Cone during the festival. Its mysterious ownership from Roman times to the Renassiance and it subsequent lending to the British Museum, its history of smashings and restorations were re-enacted by John Northwood and his contemporaries.

During the festival there were many events in the Glass Quarter, including The British Glass Biennale, masterclasses, Synergy filmed by the BBC, lecture programme, demonstrations, schools projects, exhibitions, entertainment and much more. The next Festival will be held in 2006.
