The 13th Cambridge Glass Fair held at Chilford Hall Vineyard. A wonderful fair that has something for all tastes. It is an event which brings together around 100 exhibitors from across the U.K. and Europe. One can find both antique glass and contemporary studio work; glass from all eras and to suit all tastes. If your preference is for Georgian drinking glasses you will find many knowledgeable specialists, if you are interested in the Art Deco and Art Nouveau periods you will be amply catered for by several quality exhibitors and if you lean toward modernist collectables and art glass you will be spoilt for choice. The fare included demonstations of glass engraving by Lesley Pyke as well as other well known contemporary studio glass makers such as Adam Aaronson and Siddy Langley. There was an exhibition of coloured Victorian English Pressed Glass in the foyer and at the whitefriars.com table we saw an exhibition of Whitefriars Glass Ducks and Whitefriars Archtectural slabs by Geoffrey Baxter, also a recently blown flint glass Nuts 'n Bolts vase which will be auctioned to help raise money to save Broadfield House. There was also a petition at the fair to help save Broadfield House or you can sign online www.gopetition.com/online/24751.html. Thanks to all those that took part on the day including Andy McConnell who was taking pictures for his forthcoming book on 20th Century glass decanters. Good luck Paul & Christina in organising your next fair. The next Cambridge Glass Fair will be held on 27th Sept' 2009 at the same venue www.combridgeglassfair.com.
