I apologise for the lack of posts recently, I have been very busy working towards my stand for Chester Art Fair. With lots of work to make I didn't have much time to post, heres all about it.
Chester Art Fair 🎨🚗💨
After a 5 hour journey from Cornwall, in a van full of glass sculptures, I was more than happy to arrive in Chester with everything (including me) in one piece!!😰👍🏼 We arrived just in time for Chester's Christmas light switch on! It was a lovely start to the weekend with a 12 days of Christmas procession, fire works and even Santa making an appearance, you couldn't not love it.
Chester was eye opening and exciting experience. It wasn't my most successful show by far as I was only one of a few 3-D artists. The majority of stands were painting based and I think this was mainly what the clientele of Chester Art Fair were looking for this year. However a few sales gave me a bit of confidence and allowed me to make some new contacts. I met some lovely and very talented artists over the weekend who I hope to stay in touch with. The show was unlike any other I had done before, with security procedures and free Clinique sample bags, it was definitely something new, another level compared to some.
With only a small stand I tried to show of my work the best I could, showing a variety of my work. I had one show stopper piece (as I liked to call it), "Celebration". Measuring 30cm wide and 105cm tall "Celebration" is my biggest tower to date. The show stopper is made from a mixture of champagne coloured metallic glass, embossed pearlescent glass, and hand made - Kiln fired Dichroic glass pieces.
I've attached photos from the show, showering everything from the lovely place that is Chester (yes I had some spare time to look around 🙊), to close ups of "Celebration" and my stand.
