A SANDFORD glass artist is celebrating a major win at the Festival of Glass Expo in Drysdale.
Darryl Trezise won in the overall category of non-wearable glass art and said the recognition is a huge honour.
“The person who judged the category introduced himself and explained why my piece was chosen,” Mr Trezise said.
“He said because it was a very original and unique piece that used a technique that married two elements together that is very hard to do and I had managed to do this with an extraordinary piece.
Steel and glass are two of the hardest to do.”
