Spring 2018

2017 was a year mainly of commissions from as far afield as Hawaii, South Africa and Australia. In contrast 2018  begins much nearer to home with work in several UK exhibitions, some very local.

Strathearn gallery has a new piece for their opening show this year, as does The Biscuit Factory in Newcastle. The Green Gallery likewise for their 25th anniversary….congrats! The Borders Art Fair along the road in Kelso in March, Pyramid in York in May and the same month Peter Laytons gallery hosts ‘Blowing hot and cold’ @ London Glassblowing.

Potential for some exhibitions further afield later in the year. Watch this space!.


Museum of New Art Parnu

Estonian glass artist Kati Kretsna has just sent to me the catalogue from the exhibition celebrating 75 years of Estonian glass art.

Here is the cover. Scottish/Estonian alliance!

The pictures of the exhibition look amazing.

Kati sent two but here is a link to an item on the Nation news (in Estonian) that shows more.

British Glass Biennale 2012 ‘People’s Prize’ award

Not a Wave an Oceanvessel!

Perhaps the most important contemporary glass exhibition in the UK has just finished.

Held every two years the Glass Biennale  is a chance for the public to see what the glass artists of Britain are up to. Sadly I couldn’t make the opening but I am delighted to find I have been given joint first place for the ‘Peoples Prize’

Luxembourg International Glass Festival

I have just returned and would have to say it was quite an experience with some stunning glass on show.

Photographs and comments to follow soon.


Art in Action 2011 2nd prize

Art in Action demo

Demonstration under the watchful eye of Anthony Wassel

Another enjoyable event at Waterperry House this year.  After coming first last year in the ‘Best of the best’ exhibition, I was great to be given the 2nd prize this year. Even better it was a fellow glass demonstrator Liam who won first place. With two first places and a second prize in the last two events, the glass demonstrators have done well recently considering in the over 20 year old history of the event glass had never won it before. A huge feather in he cap for Steven Prendigast and his team who organise the glass show.

Less successful were my own demonstrations. This year partly through problems with the kiln and my own stupidity most of the pieces cracked.
