Chelsea Flower Show visit

Posted in Bianca Divito glass artist, Damian Keane landscape gardens by sheelanagigcomedienne on May 24, 2012

We got tickets for our first  visit to the Chelsea Flower Show on Tuesday 22nd May on what seemed to be the first day of summer. I wore a frock. Blooming colourful. It was a jolly but tiring day out.

I met this charming talented glass artist called Bianca Divito. Her work is gorgeous. Some of her most popular designs are her signature flower and tear drop pendants which incorporate full lead crystals. She is also a a stained glass conservationist having worked on Canterbury Cathedral.  She was inspired by Evie Hone who was one of Ireland’s great stained glass artists who belonged to Tur Gloine.   Bianca Divito Contemporary Art Glass Ireland: The Artist     Here she is with her dad who was at the stand helping her as well as her fiance Damien who is a landscape gardener. He is hailed as the next Diarmuid Gavin. Damien Keane Garden Design

They were awarded a certificate of merit for the presentation of their stand.

    Wow, I have just spotted thing on a Google search…. Thanks so much, I’m delighted that you liked my stand and work. Thanks for your mention in your blog! I’m trying to work out who you were as I spoke to hundreds of people over the course of the show! Best wishes, Bianca Divito
