Come to meet Setsuko at Lambton Park NSW, Art Bazaar.
This year we have been focusing on making more appearances in the public in order to create more interest in our fantastic glass. We have already attended the Morpeth Art bazaar, which was a great experience for us at Ogishi Craft Centre. We hope to see you all at the Newcastle Art Bazaar on the 27th of November. We will be showcasing a range of small gift items for Christmas, as well as samples of our Glass Memorial selection and also gift vouchers for Glass blowing lessons. It will be a great day to check out what the artisans and designers of the Hunter have to offer, and a great opportunity to do some Christmas shopping for friends and family!
Recently we had the honour of attending the BEC Business Excellence Awards for the Hunter Region. We had produced the awards and also won an award in the retail category.
The awards were a good chance to have a look at our own business and how we could improve some aspects of our business, but also we are extremely happy to have been recognised for our hard work. Many other businesses attended the night, and it was great to be able to see what other amazing things the Hunter Region had to offer. It was also nice to see some of our neighbours in the area win some awards, and it gives us pride to be a part of the Hunter Valley.
I am one of the few women glassblowers in Australia and, in physical structure the smallest. However, I do have an important advantage and uniqueness - I have a woman's eye. This is why delicacy, softness and simplicity are always present in my work
