Glass +



Overload of pics alert.. making up for time away :) I was happy not to miss the Glass + exhibition at the Zig Zag Gallery in Kalamunda last week. I was immediately attracted to the piece above and below, a beautiful re-use of recycled bottle glass and brass machinery parts, 'Green and Gold' is a 'tribute to Australia's farming heritage and the people who work on the land'. Has a touch of the Art Deco styling don't you think? The cluster of Monarch butterflies directly below is definitely worth an embiggening..


I didn't take a shot of every piece, there were too many but each piece was a delight to see. The glass sculpture below was exquisite. Inspired by the story of Sappho's Leap the skull 'tucked deep inside the glass' is an extraordinary combining of stone and glass. I am ever in awe of the artistic talent and imagination put into the creation of these works. Which is your favourite? Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe..

  7. Wow, I am most impressed with what can be produced in glass. I remember watching glass blowing in Swaziland and they make some amazing things. Thanks so much for sharing all these photos. Hope all is well Diane

  8. Damn clever, these glassblowers! I'm with you in liking the Green and Gold, though I expect I'll have heard enough about green and gold once the cricket test matches have started.

  15. All those pieces look wonderful. If you are a lover of glaswork as art and have Netflix then I recommend "Blown away" a competition between glassblowers who can blow and make the best ideas and the best pieces.

  16. Fabulous exhibition Grace. I like the one with the green bottles, but also like the very colourful one with the chicken wire, so clever.

  17. You probably already know that this show would appeal to me. I love glass art and there are some gorgeous things among your photos. I love the green too but, that butterfly piece is so intriguing.
