This film created by glass artists Ann Brodie, Ruth Dupré and Louise Gilbert Scott, was awarded the Bombay Sapphire Prize 2005. This award claims to be the world's biggest annual award for atists, designers and architects working with glass. "The glassmakers say that their film (named after an area of 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". Roker breakfast emphasises [sic] 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"--Press release, 26 September 2005.
Filmed at the National Glass Centre, Sunderland.
