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.

GNCCF Manchester 2010 update- another award

award

‘Best Selected Maker’ award

Rather embarrassing  all this.

Rather like waiting for buses are receiving awards. You wait and wait, nothing comes and then they all come at once.

Still thanks to James Photography for awarding me with the ‘Best Selected Maker’ award which includes shooting 360 degree photographs of my work which allows the viewer to scroll around the piece.

I have already seen a 360 degree photograph using a perfume bottle of mine which looked great. Hopefully when pictures of a Wave are done I will put them up here.

The show proved good more to come.

As a follow on from the Biennale exhibition, some of the exhibitors were asked to show their work at Peter Layton’s London Glassblowing Gallery in London. Here is the piece I sent.

The show opens 24th Sept, see more details here


British Glass Biennale 2010

Ocean Bowl

Aurora Ocean Bowl

I have been accepted to exhibit at this years event. An Ocean bowl was chosen to represent my work.

Part of the International Festival of Glass the show runs from 27th of August to 11th of September.

[Update] Here is the piece I exhibited. Unfortunately I could not make the opening but a fellow exhibitor kindly sent some pictures to me.

This piece sold at the opening and I have been asked to do several commissions from it, which would be fantastic if only my furnace was working at the moment and everything I touched didn’t crack!. GAH!

What an amazing event ‘Art in Action’ is. Glass blowing in a stately homes garden is the way ahead!

25000 visitors and I think I spoke to them all.

What an honour it is winning this award. I’ll update more when my head clears.  Here is a wee link for now- AnA

Being shy I asked my stupid identical  twin brother to pose for photographers <cough>
