The first quarter of 2011 has been taken up with commission work, mainly from last years Glass Biennale. Exhibitions begin in March. I’ll be taking part in two in Scotland at theStrathearn gallery in Crieff and the Green gallery near Stirling. The Broadfield House Glass Museum is showing a Wave as part of a sea theme exhibition, on until the autumn.
In May I was due to exhibit in Germany at the lovely Galerie Rosenhauer. Unfortunately it has had to be cancelled for the time being. Hopefully we can reschedule for a later date. In the same month another sea themed exhibition will be showing my work, Imagine Gallery in Long Melford which opens on the 22nd of May. I met the owner at last years Art in Action.
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!
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.
