“My studio is based at Canberra Glassworks where I have access to a fantastic glass blowing studio or Hotshop. The Hotshop has all the equipment I need to make traditional Venetian style works, including two furnaces that hold more than 500 kilograms of molten glass. I work with a tight-knit team of skilled glass blowers, using techniques handed down from generation to generation.”
