The Art of Making a Flying Carpet

My Own Flying Carpet created by Giuse Maggi

Italian glass artist Giuse Maggi’ s exhibition is November 25 and 26.   Her pieces sell out quickly so you must get there early.

A geologist by training, like other expats, she discovered her passion for glass artistry when she and her husband left Italy to live in Saudi Arabia.  A decade later she has built up an impressive resume and a huge clientele in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain.

She is included in the 2000 New Glass Review.  In 2009 she won a CBS Dichroic Glass Award for her multi-layered glass designs.  Both the National Museums of Saudi Arabia and Bahrain have exhibited her work.

Giuse teaches her craft to other budding glass artists.  They have exhibited their own work thanks to her.

Although I have my own flying carpet, I go to all of her exhibits.  I love her art and being in her studio.  The exhibit is at the Al Nakeel Compound Villa 28, next to Jawad Dome.  9am-6pm.

    Dear Eva, thanks for your nice comment about my work and for coming to my Open House. It was a pleasure to see you and to discover your passion about writing! I was curious to read your blog and now I am surfing on it. I like it and I share most of the feelings you tell about saudi, the desert and life. I will list it on my favorite. Well done! Love, giuse

    Thank you Giuse. Your towers are decorating my dining room table! I love them.
    How did you find my blog? I don’t think I told you the name. But that’s fantastic if you found it. See you soon, Eva
