Description

Internationally renowned Venetian master glass blower Davide Penso and Canadians Karina Geuvin and Cedric Ginart will light up their torches 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 color 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 to 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 perfom together and then the final performance of the evening will be led by Davide.

There will be a commentary by a local glass artist explaining what they are doing as they blow and sculpt the glass. Three large screens will show their torch work and glass sculpting close-up.

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 prize in a limited ticket raffle and their will be door prizes on the night.

"Twilight Flames" is part of the annual Festival of Glass, held in the Drysdale area during February. The next day (Sunday 17th February 2019) sees the Festival of Glass Expo at Christian College, Drysdale, featuring displays by 40+ glass artists and craftspeople, demonstrations of glass working techniques, the Glass Art Awards and much more.
