Fantasy in a fishbowl #3

 

This fishy piece was awarded a ‘Highly Commended’ at the recent LCACA small works 8×8 exhibition.  The piece features a bunch of fantastic fishy critters more or less in a dreamy fishbowl – however a few of the critters are making a break for it!

The exhibition has since ended, and this piece has been updated and remounted onto a solid timber base.  This piece is now at Ferry Park Gallery – if you are travelling up the Pacific Highway and passing through Maclean, pull off the highway and take a break while you check out the Ferry Park Gallery.

This piece is the smallest of my ‘Fantasy in a Fishbowl’ series – just 19cm wide by 14cm deep by 23cm high – priced at $285.00.

TheFlowSpring2018Cover354x459

The digital edition of Spring 2018 issue of The Flow Magazine (the leading glass journal for the flame-working community) is now out and available on your screens.  This is the Nature Issue, and the magazine features articles and galleries of glass artists work with a ‘nature’ theme.

Australian artists are well represented – Kathryn Chaston, Barb Jorgenson and Terri Krahe were all included – well deserved too.  Their work is outstanding…

And I’m am delighted that the editors included my Fantasy in a Fishbowl #1.  Talk about keeping good company!

2018 Festival of Glass – Happy!

180224-16s.jpg

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!
