Meredith gallery featuring glass artist

MEREDITH — The League of NH Craftsmen Meredith Fine Craft Gallery will be hosting Nanda Soderberg as the featured artist of the month for September.

Soderberg's work is unique in the fact that it is upcycled, found, and repurposed wine and beer bottles. He uses his glassblowing experience and techniques to make these bottles into beautiful goblets and bowls among other pieces.

Soderberg says he is driven by the idea of taking a glass object he finds -- something that may have had a single use or is heading to a landfill -- and transforming into something that can be used indefinitely. He began his experimentation and research with found glass in graduate school and realized that he was heading in a direction that not many glassworkers have gone before. Reconfiguring found glass objects through traditional hot and cold glass working process.

Those with question about the display of Soderberg's work can gallery at 603.279.7920 or visit the gallery at 279 Daniel Webster Highway.
