The beautiful and best crafted glass in the country
Did the SALA art exhibits whiz by during August and you missed them? You can still see some great art in the Barossa Valley as many exhibits are being left as is for the Gourmet Festival in early September. Also on until the 25th of September is the Fuse Glass Prize exhibit.
Held every two years, this prestigious art award brings the best glass artisans in the country together. This year the Fuse Glass Prize exhibition is being held at the Jam Factory at Seppeltsfield in the Barossa Valley. This competition brings entries from the most accomplished contemporary glass artists. The exhibit is the work of the 15 finalists in the competition, and the works are absolutely stunning.

This is world class art glass and quite remarkable in size, colour and effect. The winning piece by Clare Belfradge looked to me, as if it was a large river washed stone. It is incredible how she made this stunning piece. The $7,200 work of art has been snapped up by someone who thought it stunning as well. Other works include huge glass urns and some wall art made of small mosaic glass pieces. The artists are from all over Australia and New Zealand.
