Jackie Simmonds wins Equinox 2019 Prize

Earlier this year, Jackie Simmonds entered this annual exhibition on the Facebook group ‘Fused Glass Tutorials and Books‘. Members of the group voted for their favourite piece and Jackie’s plate ‘Field and Hedgerow’ (pictured here) took first prize.

Jackie finds that Facebook is a wonderful way to showcase work and to interact and share with like-minded others. The communities of specialised groups, such as Fused Glass allow multifaceted artists and craftspeople from around the world to support and encourage each other. Conversations between members are often lengthy and informative providing the opportunity to discuss and resolve technical queries. Working as an artist is often isolating and the community of a Facebook group supports and connects artists. As Jackie observes:

“Winning a competition has brought me to the attention of many people all over the world, and I have made lots of new friends through this extraordinary social media vehicle called Facebook. Although we only connect on line, I have found so many of these friends to be wonderfully compassionate and caring, providing me with much appreciated support when needed. Social media may well cause problems in society, but it also has great value, if used sensibly”.
