Upcycled Glass Lecture at Meredith Arts and Crafts Gallery

MEREDITH — The League of NH Craftsmen Meredith Fine Craft Gallery is pleased to host its fourth annual "Signature of Excellence" lecture series featuring juried members of the League of NH Craftsmen.

The first lecture of this series is Upcycled Glass by Nanda Soderberg on Monday, June 16 from 7-8 p.m. in the Fireside Room at Chase House in Meredith.
Nanda's work is unique in the fact that it is upcycled, found, and repurposed from wine and beer bottles. Nanda uses his glassblowing experience and techniques to make these bottles into beautiful goblets and bowls amongst other things.
Nanda is driven by the idea of taking a found glass object, 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. Currently Nanda works in his studio in a mill building in Manchester reconfiguring found glass objects through traditional hot and cold glassworking process.
During the month of September Nanda will also be the Featured Artist of the Month at the Fine Craft Gallery in Meredith. He will have a center display focused around his work where customers can purchase one of these unique crafts.
