Arts, Business & Employees Award winners 2015

On Wednesday 1st July Phoenix Optical Technologies were awarded the Arts, Business & Employees Award by Arts and Business Cymru.


Through a grant from Arts Council of Wales, glass artist Rhian Haf has had the opportunity of undertaking a 2-month residency with Phoenix Optical Glass. The support of the business has allowed her to develop her practice and complete a new body of work. This partnership was further extended by an outreach project for children and older people in Denbighshire, providing them with the opportunity to understand and use glass in a creative way. Phoenix extended its initial support by providing further access to equipment as well as scrap pieces of materials for the workshops.This enabled 10 days of workshops and 2 site visits to the factory.
