Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair 2009 ‘Best in Show’

I ¬†greatly enjoyed exhibiting at last years event and was delighted to be awarded ‘Best in Show’ by the event jury. Particularly in light of the quality of some of the exhibitors there, receiving this prize was a real honour and surprise!.

The show was very well run by the enthusiastic and friendly organisers and I would thoroughly recommend  a visit to anyone interested in quality, contemporary applied art.

I have just been accepted into the 2010 event and look forward to October this year.

The piece shown was bought by a lady literally on the last minute of the show. My next door exhibitors photo shows some shard work near the bottom consisting of fish images. These glass shards are applied before the piece is blown resulting in them being trapped between layers of glass.
