The end of November was a busy time for the studio. Our activity was not just centered on making work but also on sharing what work we have done by opening the studio to any interested individuals. The impetus for this was our involvement with Craft ACT's second DESIGN Canberra festival.
Along with opening our workshop to visitors during an open studio day, Jeremy was involved with a DESIGN Buzz talk about collaboration with Lynda Roberts and Paul Gazzola. Here is a quick description of the talk they presented:
The world is evolving and ideas are changing. New problems require new solutions. Most are beyond the capacity of one individual to resolve. Effective collaboration, bringing together a wide range of skills, expertise and perspectives, can contribute enormously to finding elegant and durable solutions. All collaborations are a human activity, connecting people across culture, language, experience and locality and enabling multiple voices to join together to create something of communal worth. But what makes for good collaboration? Is there one ‘Go to’ model that will guarantee success? Join glass artist Jeremy Lepisto, and artists and curators Lynda Roberts and Paul Gazzola, as they discuss their respective approaches to collaboration in the highly diverse and challenging creative sector.
Here are some images of the studio and of the talk:
As a result of our involvement with the DESIGN Canberra festival and other entities and engagements, there has been a recent flutter of media and articles on our little studio. This has inspired us to include a new page on the website to record all of this activity. We have called the page The Reports and you can find a link to it above or here.
