The 2018 Festival of Glass was held over the weekend of 17-18 February at Drysdale, Victoria. The event is organised and run by the local Clifton Springs – Drysdale Community Group.
We arrived on the Friday eventing, and delivered my entries to the Glass Art Awards team. We met other entrants, saw some fabulous work that had been entered, and we got to catch up with other glass folks who were setting up for Sunday’s Glass Expo.
Saturday evening was the ‘Twilight Flames’ event at the nearby Leura Park Estate winery, where the good folks served us fine food and beautiful wines while Murano master Mauro Vianello demonstrated his skills with sculptural glass. Lots of fun catching up with more glass folks!
The Glass Expo was a lot of fun – but a long day for the exhibitors!
During the day, the winners of the Awards Show were announced.
I was totally stoked to be awarded First Place in the Wearable Art section, and delighted to be second place behind the wonderful Kathryn Chaston in the Sculptural section. Happy with that!
