support for and promotion of glass art.
In 2010, GAS selected two men to receive this award: Mark Peiser and Dan Klein.

| ||Dan Klein was a founding director of North Lands Creative Glass in Scotland. After running his own gallery for 10 years, he joined Christie's London as Director of 20th Century Decorative Arts. He subsequently served as Vice President for Christie's Switzerland and then as International Executive Director of Phillips. During the last nine years of his life, he was an independent curator, collector, and writer; his several books include the standard Glass: A Contemporary Art. |
Dan Klein stayed connected with North Lands. He also served as external examiner to the department of glass at Royal College of Art, was on the board of Pilchuck Glass School, and was a patron of the Guild of Glass Engravers, a lifetime honorary member of the Contemporary Glass society, and president of the Scottish Glass Society. His obituary in the London Times remarked that "he did more than any other to embrace the emerging British studio glass movement, encouraging its artists and promoting them to a wider audience."
