Florence street art

I have been browsing through the photos from our trip to Europe last year. I was hoping to post pictures from some of the amazing art exhibitions we saw but I ended up selecting graffitti pics we took in Florence.
By the time we got to Florence we were exhausted from looking at galleries and ended up hunting the side streets for street art and gelati shops. I think I was suffering from Stendhal Syndrome!
back to glass in the next post......

glass installation Venice Biennale

Last year we were lucky to be in Venice for the Biennale.
We saw so much incredible art.
I loved this installation using old glass lampshades.
( I'm sorry I never took the artists name.....)

As a person who loves pattern and colour I often
add lots of detail to my artwork.
Strangely though
this is my favourite spoon and it is plain cream glass.
I love its shape and simplicity.

Unpacking the kiln....

is aways exciting - will the glass be cracked,full of strange bubbles?......the firing process softens the edges and im always seduced by the light, the edible quality of the glass.....its lickable!

More glass inserts for Doron's school building. One more firing to go......then the 9 are finished.

taking shape

I have been buried in my studio trying to finish 9 glass inserts for a staircase. They should all be completed by the end of  the week. It has been a fascinating process and I've learnt so much. Better go and check on the kiln!
