2015 is the Year of Irish Design and it has also been designated the United Nations International Year of Light. With light being a core element of glass design, it seems appropriate to address both simultaneously. Light and glass have long been intertwined; reflections and refraction, luminous colours, dramatic shadows and spectacular prisms; glass offers the designer a rich set of implements beyond the physicality of the medium itself.
