|Glass Kangaroos; blown glass figurines created by Kevin Prochaska, a Disneyland glass blower for 10 of his 35 years experience.|
Wishing all me mates in Oz a Happy 'Stralia Day! Looking for appropriate imagery caused me to reflect. For 10 years, essentially, the 1990's, my wife and I lived in Australia. Working in design in Brisbane, Queensland is where I first was introduced to cast glass. Love the place and the people.
|I've become nostalgic for the carefree time I was in Australia, happily riding me favourite 'Roo - "Bazza" - around the Sydney Opera House.|
|All was fun and games until some unspoken line is crossed and it got ugly.|
|In Oz, McDonald's are called Macca's... and they serve hamburgers with slices of violently purple beetroot.|
|And that is normal.|
|And these friendly critters are considered "little".|
