Glassblowing at Art in Action 2012
« on: July 20, 2012, 12:46:48 PM »
We went to Art in Action yesterday.  We didn't have a lot of time there as the organisers of the new Park and Ride system - necessary as a result of waterlogged fields where we normally park - seriously underestimated the numbers and traffic issues, resulting in a 1&1/2 hour wait for a bus for a 3 mile journey!  However, we did see most of what we went to see, which was the glassblowing demonstrations.  We saw Graham Muir and Layne Rowe blowing, and bought a piece of glass by Martin Andrews and a piece by Scott Benefield. 

Here's the link to my picasaweb album of the day.  https://picasaweb.google.com/elaine.simons/ArtInAction2012?authuser=0&authkey=Gv1sRgCMCC4qH2kePpwAE&feat=directlink

And below is the glass we bought.

Lovely Leni.

I do like your Benefield vase, what a great effect from 'simply' overlaying stripes. I see you chose the subtlest variation and to my eye the most interesting of the three shown.

Art in Action is a four day event held annually at Waterperry Gardens in Oxford.  You can see artists in all types of media at work, there are displays of all types of art, you can take part in practical classes, and there is also a market place.  Here's the website for this year's event http://www.artinaction.org.uk/
