Denmark / Glas Net Annual Conference

September 15, 2010

Stephen visited  Glas Smedjen, the Hundtested Studio of Andrew and Nanna Backhaus Brown last weekend , hosts for the Dansish Glass Conference 2010.

David Salvadore was the visitng maker and the demos were mixed in wth a good social and the AGM. The Danes do know how to throw a party and blow some glass ! Denmark does have a strong core of glass blowers who do take the time to get together once a year. Congrats to Andy & Nanna for hosting what was a very good conference and weekend, and for orgainising the Aqua exhibition which opened on the 13th Sept and closes on 3rd October. We have a piece on show as part of this event.

Have a look at the  exhibition web site here AQUA. which is unusually and interestingly housed in a boat building ‘shed’.
