My quarterly magazine break arived yesterday and I enjoyed reading it as I always do. 

Full of inspiring artists stories, how to apply for council awards, book reviews, meetings forthcoming and past. I enjoy reading these quarterly magazines as they keep me focused and determined to succeed.

I applied and was accepted to exhibit my work in the Vessel Exhibition at the Vessel Gallery in London for a fundraising event organised by the Contemporary Glass Society.                                     

I was especially pleased to see my Vessel in the Portfolio section after the VESSELS @ VESSEL review by Katherine Coleman. 

Her review is brief and to the point. Listing the visitors favorite 'Old Bean Can' by Rachel Mary Elliott. I can see why. The skills and talent involved in making this glass tin can with a few glass beans in is fabulous and fun. 

All this feedback and articles I read, in this magazine and others alike, whether it be about my work or not it all helps my understanding of what is liked and more importantly appreciated. It shows I'm on the right path as my image of my work was selected to be printed. 

I am pleased to see my work alongside these fabulous glass artists and I will continue to support the CGS when ever I can do.
