My photography friend Sharon Love and I went for a short photo shoot on Friday morning to the de Flute Glass Studio and Gallery in Fairy Springs Road, ( Opposite Skyline Skyrides), Rotorua.
We were aiming to get some award winning shots for the next Rotorua Camera Club competition on glass.
It was great to go to another artists studio to see Ron Van der Vlugt doing his demonstration.
It was really theatrical and full of drama.
The studio is lovely and warm in winter.
Very friendly and very informative
Lovely Christmas balls that would be great gifts for any occasion.
I could almost have stayed a whole day, but I had to get back as to my studio I am doing a mosaic making demonstration for television on Monday and I needed to do a big Spring clean.
I often run mosaic making demonstrations for garden Circle members and clubs from all over New Zealand . I charge an entry fee and have group concessions.
Visitors from out of town and all over the word usually ask me where else they can visit art wise and I recommend that go to Ron's studio as well, since it's not too far away and it relates to the sort of work I do with glass mosaics.
So if you are visiting Rotorua and you want to see a classy, glass artist in action visit de Flute Glass and buy a special piece of one off, hand made glass that is unique to Rotorua.

Each of us is carving a stone, erecting a column, or cutting a piece of stained glass in the construction of something much bigger than ourselves.
