BBC Culture reports: “The series also highlighted a major development in glassblowing: the growing number of women entering this formerly male-dominated field. What’s more, glassmakers today often look beyond formal concerns, taking a more conceptual, politicized approach, addressing such issues as feminism and environmentalism.”

“The winner of Blown Away, Deborah Czeresko, a glass-blower with 30 years of experience, filled a gallery with an installation of pieces in the form of various types of food – strings of sausages and fried eggs ­– that for her symbolized patriarchy, and referred to a stage in the contest when she was the only woman competing against three men.”
