Here’s a couple of images sent to me by a customer.  He has commissioned David Turner a blacksmith in Derbyshire to create the mounting for my Raunacht Mask – ‘Frustration’ I think he’s done a superb job, it really sets it off well.

Just had some great news that one of my pieces has been acquired by TacomaMuseum, www.tacomaArtMuseum.org . Hope to get over to see it sometime!

Frauenau revisited

Frauenau glass museum Rococco Church Frauenau Rike Scholle

Took a short trip to Frauenau last week via Munich. It was a short but busy trip. I shared an excellent lunch with Erwin Eisch who is on great form and looking forward to his one-man exhibition to celebrate the re-opening of the .National Glass Centre at SunderlandUniversity. It was nice to renew old friendships with the guys in the factory that helped me during my Artist in Residence stint. Also had chance to try out the factory vending machine, full of beer!!

The Eisch Gallery was in full swing with its latest exhibition by Rike Scholle. Well worth a look on the Eisch Gallery site. A chance to also meet up with Sissi Ziglsperger a very good friend who oversees a lot of the exhibitions and gallery there.

I also had a chance to meet up with a German collector of my work who has three major pieces. I had to actually go to his home to sign a piece for him on the way back to Munich.

All in all an excellent visit. Maybe back there later this year!

A Hard Grind!

Well, I’ve been busy on my new commission. I’ve made all the components and I’m in the process of fusing them together to make the panels. They are coming along very nicely. I have four made and now I’m starting to grind and polish up the edges.  And to prove it, here’s me on the linisher doing just that.
