The upgrade of the exhibition space at Appleton Street Studios in Richmond offered a wonderful opportunity to showcase my latest work, and a few old favourites.
Over two nights, myself and jewellery artist Meredith Hoult invited a bunch of friends and art lovers to the new gallery-cum-cafe space which was positively bursting at the seams with lovely glass, sensational silver jewellery, and even some handmade jewellery using my glass!
We called the exhibition Duet!
I just thought I’d post a few photos of the work on display for your delight and delectation.
Cool blues are always popular
The freshness of green – and one of the new “sculptural” pieces
Yellows and oranges are always so cheerful and summery
The “Gaudi woven” – the best looking fruit bowl in captivity, and practical too
Such a great exhibition space – bright, light and welcoming
Life’s colours …
… which is one of the pieces my students can make on my new course which is proving so popular. And, er, “moi”, by the poster advertising the courses!
Both artists very happy with the way things have worked out, with famous Melbourne artist Jeff Martin who manages Appleton Street Studios and who has “created” the new gallery space in double-quick time! Thanks, Jeff!
And a big thanks to our lovely daughter Coby who helped set up – and an honourable mention to hubby who handled the catering.
So happy summer, everyone, happy glass making, appreciation and buying!
Now … tea time and a relax!
More exhibitions coming up over summer and into autumn – watch this space – and a big thank you to all customers, followers, fans and fellow glassies.
