Is it my imagination but are glass trophies and awards much more common place these days? To me it seems that the glass slab trophy or the cut glass bowls are very much the choice of today. Personally I don’t see why. The cut crystal has never really inspired me – it has to be stupendous to get my attention. And the glass slabs – really? To me they look like crystal tombstones and for me not that inspiring when it comes to celebrating an important achievement.
