Undercast 2009

Well this blog has suffered in the organisation and goodness forbid spending time on another blog

Students of the SCA GLASS STUDIO invite you to a collective exhibition of their work at GiG gallery 70a Glebe Point Road, Glebe. With up to 20 different artists from all levels of practice from First year to PHD there will be a fantastic variety of contemporary glass on display and for sale. The eclectic mix of design and conceptual work reflects both individual artistic expression and our shared passion for glass. Be inspired and perhaps complete your xmas shopping.

Would you cycle around the coast of Britain?

Whilst waiting for my lift, in the library (where else) I read an article about Nick Hand who has just completed a bicycle ride around the coast of Britain. Whilst raising money for a good cause he stopped to interview craftspeople on the way. He has blogged and twittered the process as well as producing short sound slides of his interviews. The range of people is quite eclectic from Glass artists, Kilt makers, bird ringers, paper maker, spinners, milliner's and even type writer artist's.

Enjoy! it looks fascinating.
