Shiny and new: Darryl Fagence's stainless steel and glass piece is titled Pohutukawa. Multi-media: This is one of three pieces Brian Chrystall has produced for the exhibition. Take a look at the glass By NICOLA MURPHY Ron Reichs is a pro when it comes to polishing rocks and glass. When members of the Waitakere Glass Artists came to him asking the best way to polish their works, Mr Reichs started getting into the artform himself. His work features in the group's second annual exhibition this year called Fresh. The Waiatarua resident's piece is a light green glass bowl which he worked on for two weeks. It came out as good as I expected.'' He used a process similar to the lost wax technique, a method of casting which involves producing a wax form cased in a heat-resistant material which is heated to melt away the wax. Mr Reichs took this one step further by cre- ating a rubber mould which can be reused. Curator Lisa Rogers says she wanted the group to come up with work that was new and innovative. I wanted them to pro- vide work that had never been seen before.'' Fresh runs until December 5 at Corban Estate Arts Centre on Great North Rd, access off Mt Lebanon Lane.
