Flaming June Exhibition

Posted in Exhibitions, Rosedale the locale by Kate Jones on May 31, 2011

This show make no direct reference to Flaming June by Lord Leighton, though we do have a feast of colour and imagery drawn from the amazing wealth of colour and forms found in the garden. The weather looks set to turn and make it a ‘Flaming June’ in temperature too. Lets hope so !

Images below of snaps taken in the garden and the mass of tumbling life that has provided much of the inspiration for this very different body of work.

Planning a wedding at this Church for the end of June…  hmmm, maybe this is a good omen ! Beautiful light, and 10m mins later it was gone and clear blue skies returned.

50 Years of Studio Glass from Great Britian

Posted in Exhibitions by Kate Jones on May 23, 2011

50 years of Studio Glass from Great Britain
For the first time a museum in Germany is presenting an exclusive review of 50 years of Studio Glass from Great Britain. More than 60 works from over 50 artists are shown. The selection includes artistically designed and in large quantity produced giftware, highly elaborate individual work and complex installations.

Nearly half of the exhibits are loans from artists as well as the Studio Glass collection of the Ernsting foundation Alter Hof Herding in Coesfeld.

The extensive collection of British Studio Glass from the European Museum of Modern Glass, which has been acquired during a period of forty years and particularly at the Coburg glass prizes, can be seen almost completely for the first time.

Crucible Change

Posted in Studio Stuff by Kate Jones on May 20, 2011

A power cut and crash cool for a well worn crucible meant a pot change this week. Very odd when its cool and quiet in here. Pleased to say today we blow glass again and it is noisey and warm !

( NB, for all the glass makers, KZ1 lasted  two and a half years, non stop… not bad)

Bow Bridge Closure

Posted in Rosedale the locale by Kate Jones on May 20, 2011

The Road from Chimney bank into the village is closed. The picture says it all. If you are coming to visit the studio, please travel via the Pickering road, or follow diversions via Lastingham or take the Castleton Road down to the village centre.

Rainbow Light

Beautiful light fell over the dale, following a heavy rain storm. The rainbow made it even more marvellous.
