I’m very happy to announce that I will be exhibiting new sculptural kiln formed glass work at Lustre 2013 at Lakeside Arts in Nottingham this November. It will be my third time showing at Lustre and am already really looking forward to showing at this great Contemporary Crafts show.
Details about the show will be available soon at the Lakeside Arts site soon but in the meantime you can get a feel of the show from images from the past few years.
From the Spring Fling Website:
Welcome to Spring Fling 2013 – renowned as one of the UK’s best contemporary visual art and craft open studios events. From 25-27 May visitors from all across Britain and the world will enjoy the work of 93 professional visual artists, designers and makers, each specially selected for the high quality of their work.
This year we have 25 brand new artists participating in the event and many of them through our new programmes. We have added a number of new features in our brochure and also prepared a A3 fold-out map to help you navigate around the event.
Visitors can also discover the region on the Spring Fling bus, as part of the official Spring Fling cycle ride, or with the Spring Fling Sunday morning walking tour. For evening entertainment Spring Fling presented a diverse range of Fringe events including performance, music, food & drink on the 24th,25th, 26th & 27th of May.
This year we will update and relaunch our web shop and a map based smartphone application to help tech savvy visitors navigate the studios, which now, post-Spring Fling will become a year round art guide.
Last month I was invited to show two sets of Buoy Boy vessels (see image) at the CHASE Charity auction held at the Royal College of Art. The event was in aid of Shooting Star Hospices and I’m happy to report both of my pieces sold and the glass section of the auction curated by glass collector Mark Holford raised over £26,000.
Lovely to receive my copy of American Craft this month and to find out they’ve used a massive image of 7 Days taken by Colin Tennant.
