Updated snap of the bubba…

And a glimpse of some new work…

Serious bit of gorgeousness right there. Our fave Norwegian Amazon is jumping straight back into the hotshop (still teaching at SCA) – with lots of exhibition commitments on the boil (mainly in Europe.)

[Hope to see you soon darl, though realistically it’s not likely before the Ausglass Conference in January, eh. n(Ed)]





She’s here!! Selma’s arrived…

11 08 2010

Lene’s just sent word of the newest arrival to the glass family; a little sweetie by the name of Selma – 53cm and weighing in at 3620, she was born in the early hours of August 2nd.

Congratulations Lene and Rob, she’s a honey.

[We can hear that clucking kicking off around the traps already! n(Ed)]





Glass Spotto: Lene Lunde, at long last…

7 07 2010

Omigod!! Lene sent through some fabulous news and images of work way back in late May for goodness sake, and it all got lost under the pile-up of other happenings vying for attention.  Mea culpa, darlings, for not bringing it sooner.

Especially as we were genuinely excited to receive it at the time (…unfortunately we had all sorts of horror going on at work, which kinda totally hijacked our attention. Hate that.)

Anyhoo, Lene and Rob expecting a bubba mid-July was the real excitement, so at least we’ve finally got everyone on imminent baby watch…waiting….waiting…

Meanwhile her glass group, Dynamo, have been doing fabulous stuff – from Oslo to Berlin and Denmark and Bergen, and it’s still on a roll…

…and then there’s this, entitled Kunt Erik left the farm again his parent’s will to look for mister Right in Berlin…

We are in heaven. Gotta love the Norwegians.

If Lene forgives our slackness, with any luck we’ll be back with huge news soon.





Just in from the lovely Lene Lunde…

Lotsa love Lene, we’re all missing you big time ♥♥♥





Postcard from Canada: from our favourite Norwegian, Lene Lunde…

(above) Lene at the early March opening of her exhibition in Oslo.

The Gang’s just received a lovely postcard from Lene Lunde, who is actually over in Black Diamond, Canada (35 minutes south of Calvary), putting in some concentrated hotshop time for Canadian glass duo Julia Reimer and Tyler Rock (who’s head of the glass program at the Alberta College of Art and Design – where, incidently, our old pal Natali Rodrigues works.)   [Hi, Nat!!  n(Ed)]

Lene, who will be working in Canada up until mid June, has just spent the Easter holiday weekend with Nat and her family (okay guys, where are the happy snaps…?) and it sounds as if she’s having a fabulous time all round.

Meanwhile she’s sent through some images of the work from her recent Oslo show – a wonderful excercise in serious playfulness if ever there was. Actually, we’re rather amazed – and frankly charmed – by the current, and entirely unconnected, synchronistic move by a number of artists towards varying degrees of toy inclusion. Perhaps it’s a healthy and perfectly natural reaction to the Establishment mob’s dreary practice of taking themselves so faffing seriously. [We live in hope…  n(Ed)]

Poor Lene did her back in the day before the exhibition opened, so was feeling horribly peaky at the launch. But she’s okay now, thank goodness, and throwing herself once more into the fray…we look forward to some cool Canadian pics…

For images of the work go to…
