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.
(As always, click any photo to see it and the rest at a bigger size)

Blowing glass looks like hard work…
Was he making a cup….
or a vase….
A funky two-hole vase it was!
David is offering classes if you’re interested! His facebook page is here: https://www.facebook.com/david.palmer.73
