Remember theunique garden show I told you about https://goo.gl/yIrXTO
? It was glorious as usual - amazing one of a kind beautifully hand crafted treasures - from practical to no-idea-what-it-is-but-it's-divine. It was a good thing I got back barely in time and house repair/reno is not complete yet so that I broke my resolve to not buy anything with only one item (snif - coveted pottery sculptures & dishware, unbelievable wooden bowls, paintings and of course blown glass items still dance in my mind.)
The single item I couldn't resist? My pics do no justice to this single blown glass piece made by master glass artist Lisa Samphire. Yes, all 5 images are of the same vase. It is glass but the outside looks and feels like pottery... The colours are so intense they almost pulse and in a strange way bring to mind deep space sky (there are tiny white specs that resemble stars.)
The best thing about the event - all these talented artists with the exception of Lisa who moved to Victoria live in the community. This annual summer event they hold always feels like a gift to us, their neighbours.
