My best sellers of the 3 shows (and now I look at this picture I can understand why I got a few comments of how well I was doing for a graduate!!). The graduate selection for GNCCF by Kelda Savage was excellent...Catherine Carr a particular favourite of mine making glass vessels from crocheted fibre glass....stunning work.
All in all, a good weekend and glad I applied.
Lustre this year was fantastic....the quality in every sense was great. I love the set up of the show and the fact it's not in a marqee just heightens it's quality. The stands are lovely and I still love my name on a lampshade. I like the fact that it's not hundreds of makers, just 55, so the visitor doesn't get too overwhelmed visually. Lots of nice places to sit and relax, have lunch.
The private view was really buzzing and again lots of visitors (even though this was the first time they had charged to enter....didn't seem to affect the show at all).
