From Derenburg to Derneburg

Whoever sits in the "glass house" should not throw stones, as is well known. And anyone sitting in the "glass house" of the Derneburg Castle Art Museum should certainly not do so. For recently, a colorful light installation has adorned the ceiling of the Glass House. More about the glass house can be found here!

The lights were donated privately by our managing director and foundation donor Gerhard Bürger. Gerhard Bürger, a native of Holle, the community to which Derneburg also belongs, has a special connection to Derneburg Castle. You can find more projects in the area of "lamp glass here!

Artist Rentals

In the last newsletter we have already reported about the artist Martin Potsch, who has rented with us to make his particularly striking glass sculptures. In the meantime all objects are finished and arrived at the artist in Bavaria. As a small supplement we have here a few photos of the finished objects.

New creative offer

Baking at 1300°C? Sounds a bit hot, doesn't it? But luckily we know all about high heat! Baking at 1300°C" is our latest creative offer for small and large guests.

For this, a 3D baking mold is dusted with flour and then pressed firmly into the oil sand so that an imprint of the mold is created. This can then be filled with colored glass powder and then poured with glass. We have many different shapes to choose from, from unicorns to butterflies to guitars, it's all here!

"Baking at 1300°C" is a project of our trainees in the field of "Businesswoman for Tourism & Leisure". The new offer will take place for the first time on November 27 and will be offered regularly next year. Tickets will be available online soon!
