More about the exhibition - Gilly
My friend Gilly Gegg was the prime mover of our exhibition as she lives not far from Porthleven and shows regularly at the craft market there in summer. Gilly's practice has covered a wide range of disciplines and she taught art for many years but she really only got seriously interested in glass when she moved to Cornwall with her husband who has also become an accomplished glassmaker. At first Gilly was mainly producing jewellery but in recent years she has moved on to beautiful glowing bowls and pictures inspired by the sea and the Cornish landscape. She tells me she is currently having to work like a demon to replace a large amount of work sold recently to repeat customer fans who wouldn't take no for an answer!
