David Palmer’s Glass-blowing

The Logan Art Gallery is hosting an exhibition of David Palmer’s glass, and David was demonstrating his glass-blowing on the weekend. My friends and I like glass, so we went along to photograph him at work.

We hadn’t announced ourselves, so he wasn’t quite ready for us when we arrived. This gave us a chance to look at his works, and works-in-progress, close up:

Once the furnace was at temperature, he asked us to move to the side, away from danger, and got to work:
