FLAME DAISY - NELSON

Flame Daisy is Anthony Genet and Berinthia Binnie. "Anthony sweats away as the gaffer, and Berinthia as his assistant. All the unique works we produce are designed collaboratively. We have worked as a team in glass for over 9 years. Anthony first enjoyed his painful experiments with glass as a young man stripping paint off a house with a gas burner. Curiosity compelled him to melt some broken glass he found in the garden and that led to a self directed adventure into working with neon. An epiphany watching Robie Reddy blowing glass on the coast drew Anthony like a moth to the flame. A brief stint at Wanganui Polytechnic learning basic blowing skills gave life to the drive to become a self-taught glass-blower. Berinthia has worked artistically from childhood, graduating from Otago School of Art as a Photography Major, but sculpture and painting were first loves. We are constantly evolving our work and pushing the boundaries of glass, exploring and exploiting the painterly qualities of hot glass.”
