For several years our Maine State Chamber of Commerce come to our store and purchase beautiful glass. They then take the glass to a framer and arrange the glass on a matt and frame it. It then becomes the award that they give out at their annual awards meeting. Here are a few of them.
That is Senator Collins in the bottom left picture!
It is a great idea. Certainly, better than most of the awards you see.
I would love to have a beautiful piece of glass hanging on the wall in recognition, rather than the traditional award plaque.
