Delighted to see Louie Thompson winning the 2012 British Glass Biennale with his Troupe: Dance Composition.

Sarah Blood’s concrete and neon Luna Fossil

First Couple of days in Zadar and what do you know, a glass museum!
This newly made (3 years old) space is dedicated to glass housing 3 floors of ancient glass, a gallery space for contemporary exhibitions, a small workshop and lampworking area for demomstrations.
Marko Stefanac gave a great demonstration of how to make a small vessel which was insightful, educational and demonstrated a quick way to make simple small pieces.
Here are some images of work currently on display by Raoul Goldoni.
The pieces here were realised by skilled hands of Pino Signoretto. Here you can see a young Pino circa 78′ amazing!
The museum has masses of glass found from digs in and around the area of Zadar most of which date back from 100 -200 AD. The pieces are grouped in design so you have the opportunity to see a myriad of variations of the same vessel -a treat!
