Autumn exhibition at the Castle Gallery Inverness

The Castle gallery in Inverness was one of the first galleries in Scotland to support my work, holding exhibitions of my glass. Denise and her team still do a great job showing local talent and artists further afield. I was therefore delighted to take part in this show about making waves, featuring the paintings of Vernon Jones and my own glass sculptures. I made 9 pieces in total for this show and feel rather pleased with the results, if my sore back rather disagrees.

What struck me the most as the show was set up, was how the colours Vernon and I used matched so well at times. Perhaps not a surprise if blues and greens but both of us use quite a broad palate of colours, which in a few examples were uncannily similar. Vernon insisted he had been channeling them to me!…perhaps so, you can decide for yourself as seen below.

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.

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.
