Kalash take to the floor

As some of you know I went to the Mid Devon show with my friend yesterday, exhibiting crafts (more hers than mine) and aside from selling a few things it’s a great day out. The highlight of the day for me was the performance by Kalash Tribal, twenty minutes of magic. Here they are,

I took many photos, in an attempt to show the movement, style and how vibrant these women are, click an image to get a bigger view.

Walsh Glass

A few days ago I was at the Mid Devon Agricultural Show where I met Matthew Walsh who was on the next stand. He makes wonderful studio glass, including these wall plaques connecting together to show the fluid movement of the carp, butterflies or seahorses.

Very elegant vases.

Matthew says  ‘My aim with all my work is to bring pleasure to all who see it.’ Well he certainly bowled me over, his work is exquisite, click each image for a better view, or have a look at his website.
