Detail – Fishbowl Fantasy #1
The ‘Dancing with the Flame’ exhibition at the National Glass Art Gallery in Wagga Wagga has kicked off. And what a collection it is… Great flame worked glass from Australia’s best. Some stunning work!
The exhibition opens today, with the official launch party this evening. The exhibition runs until 20 January 2018.
This juried exhibition celebrates the best of Australian and New Zealand flame worked glass. I was pleased to be invited to be participate in this show. I have six pieces in this show – including my ‘Fishbowl Fantasy #1’. And two of my pieces were used on the cover of the brochure!
Credit to coordinator and driving force Deb Dunkerton and to Curator Michael Scarrone for putting this event together.
If you are travelling up the Hume Highway, take the time to drop into Wagga Wagga and check out the National Glass Art Gallery and the National Glass Art Collection. The National Art Glass Collection is just spectacular and should not be missed. Every serious glass lover must go see!

These Seascape Fantasy pieces were something new for me. They were great fun to make, and I love them. But I never expected that anyone would buy them!
This one went to Kirra. Hand carried on the airplane to Melbourne (and I dropped the box as I got out of the taxi at the hotel- nervous moment, but no damage). And it sold. Yasmin from Kirra tells me that it was bought by one of their regular collectors – many thanks to him – perhaps one day, I can thank him in person.
The little brother to this piece that went to Kirra picked up a win in class at the Clarence River Arts Festival, then a few weeks later, sold at Ferry Park Gallery!
So exciting! And unexpected – who would have thought!
So many thanks to all of you lovely people who like my work!
But now, I am working on a new piece for another exhibition – watch this space!
