Twilight Flames: glass blowing and sculpting spectacular
Internationally renowned Venetian master glass blower Davide Penso and Canadians Karina Geuvin and Cedric Ginart will light up their torchers at The Range @ Curlewis to blow and sculpt pieces of spectacular glass art.
Davide lives and works on the island of Murano (Venice, Italy), which has been famed for centuries for its glass art. One of his larger elegant blown glass sculptures features permanently on the island of Murano. His blown glass jewellery is known and collected internationally. Of his torch ‘conversations’ with glass he says, “Glass follows its own time. Sometimes we fight a little bit. I have the sense of colour and design, and the glass uses me to be more beautiful”.
Karina and Cedric are glass goblet makers extraordinaire and have shared how they make their glass goblets internationally through teaching and performance. It will be their first time in Australia and your chance to see how their stunning goblets come to life in the torch.
There will be individual performances by Davide. Karina and Cedric will perform together and then the final performance of the evening will be led by Davide. A local glass artist will provide a commentary to explain what the artists are doing as they blow and sculpt the glass. Three large screens will provide close-ups as the artists work.
This is a fantastic opportunity to meet three talented and charming international glass artists and watch them work, while enjoying wonderful food and wine from the Bellarine Peninsula.
One of Davide’s unique and highly collectable seaweed sculptures will be the major raffle prize. As well as the raffle there will be door prizes on the night.
