Wanganui Festival of Glass Opens

The Wanganui Festival of Glass in New Zealand opened on September 18 and will run until October 4. And one of our favorite glass artists was in attendance at the opening, Josh Simpson!

Excerpted from the Wanganui Chronicle:

The cream of Wanganui’s arts community was out in force on Friday night for the opening of two fabulous festivals. The 2009 Wanganui Literary Festival and the Wanganui Festival of Glass opened in unison.

American glass artist Josh Simpson said there was no way he would have missed the festival. “I just love Wanganui and this studio. It is absolutely world class and the work done here is just so intense and utterly exquisite.” Mr Simpson, who is from Massachusetts, said Wanganui’s glass art had a diffused quality and was unique. “The Wanganui glass blowers are fabulous and enormously talented. I love being here.”
