The Autonoma Residency Prize, which reaches its third edition this year, was established to reward an artist or a designer who works in the field of artistic glass and who exhibit in The Venice Glass Week HUB Under35, aged between 18 and 35. It’s promoted by Laguna-B through the Autonoma project in collaboration with Pilchuck Glass School.

The russian collective FRESH. GLASS is the winner of the 2023 edition with the project OIOIIO Luminaires, winning a residency at the Pilchuck Glass School in Seattle (USA) in 2024.
Among the reasons of the Jury of the Autonomous Residency Prize – composed by Marcantonio Brandolini d’Adda (Creative Director of Laguna-B), Benjamin Wright (Creative Director of the Pilchuck Glass School), Tina Aufiero (artist and Creative Director of the Pilchuck Glass School), Caterina Toso (curator) and Alma Zevi (gallery owner and curator) – is “In addition to the essential shapes and style — which I personally love —  I appreciated the unconventional and unexpected use of glass, which is usually associated with transparency and color. Instead, in this work glass is employed differently, revisited in white, with opaque texture, with an aesthetic that I find very contemporary and creative. Glass’ materiality and texture are enhanced by the light, turning the sculptures into functional objects that go beyond art”.
