The Creative Entrepreneurs Club presents "The Roker Breakfast Girls"

‘The Roker Breakfast Girls’; will give a talk and screen their short film on the 8th of February with cocktails and networking afterwards in Gallery 5 of The Lighthouse

The Creative Entrepreneurs Club and Bombay Sapphire have teamed up to bring you a unique event featuring a trio of UK glass designers from Scotland, London and Bristol whose short film ‘Roker Breakfast’ was judged the winner of the £20,000 Bombay Sapphire Prize by a panel who included: Ron Arad, Tom Dixon, Nicole Farhi, Thomas Heatherwick, Lesley Jackson, Dan Klein and Nadja Swarovski.
The glassmakers say that their film (named after the Roker Hotel in Sunderland where they stayed when making the film at the National Glass Centre) "celebrates the theatricality of glassmaking, which normally takes second place behind the finished object". The short film emphasises the drama and dangers in a hotshop, the extraordinary aspects of glassmaking and the amazing qualities of hot glass. The film shows glass pouring, spreading, elongating, stretching, spilling, cooling, cracking and breaking as well as the more predictable way it behaves when tooled and worked.
Designer Ron Arad described Roker Breakfast as a "mini masterpiece. These people live glass. They're not scared of glass and they see a beauty that's normally hidden from everyone."
‘The Roker Breakfast Girls’; Anne Brodie, Ruth Dupré and Louise Gilbert Scott will give a talk and screen their short film on the 8th of February with cocktails and networking afterwards in Gallery 5 of The Lighthouse
The work of the 24 designers short-listed for the Prize will be showcased in the Bombay Sapphire Blue Room exhibition currently installed in the Young Designers Gallery at The Lighthouse from 24 January - 08 March 2006.

Designers, thinkers, doers, creatives, writers, analysts, stylists, musicians, DJs, gamers, architects and cultural academics – collectively, they represent the membership of the Creative Entrepreneurs Club, the network for the creative industries in Scotland.

We bring these people together to network, pitch their new ideas, listen to inspiring speakers and showcase their work. The CEC hosts around six networking events each year, and has already attracted in excess of 1300 members including Directors or Senior Partners of the most dynamic companies in Scotland

The CEC is coordinated by The Lighthouse, Scotland’s National Centre for Architecture Design and The City, which gives us direct access to both established companies and new talent from our Art Schools and Universities. Membership means you’ll be joining the network for creative industries, and will have a voice in an ongoing forum for discussion that is shaping a global industry, and defining Scotland’s increasingly important place within it.
