The year seems to already be disappearing behind us. We have been very busy receiving stock in the store, but imports are still facing difficulties. We have managed to secure 60/40 soldering rods but the reels are still two months away.

Classes have begun with our extremely popular Copperfoiling for Beginners and Fused Glass Platters. It's lovely to see the classroom buzzing with energy again. There are plenty of workshops to choose from so if you're eager to expand your skill set, check out our website for more information.

Great Women Glass Artists

In honour of International Women's Day, we are choosing to highlight the great work of some of the women practising glass art in Western Australia.

Anne Sorensen has been a full time studio glass artist for thirty years. Anne creates pieces that appear like tapestries, but are actually sculptures crafted in beautiful kiln formed glass. They are truely unique.
Margaret Heenan is a fused glass artist who consistently produces impeccably designed fused glass plates, bowls, wall pieces and sculptures using vibrantly nostalgic colours and patterns. She has pieces with collectors all over the world and has recently been featured on Talking Out Your Glass.
Claire Thomas is a fused glass artist known for creating bowls and vessels with her hand pulled murrine.
Mosaic artist, Jaky Pinnock, is most known for her colourful fish. All her mosaic works are meticulously planned with complex patterns that bring the most out of glass.
Hannah Gregory is an artist in residence at Fremantle Arts Centre. She is an accomplished stained glass artist who experiments with all forms of the glass arts to create contemporary art works.

3 lancet windows for the Uniting Church Nedlands.

Most of this church is glazed in clear obscure glass except for a circular window and three small nave windows previously by Gowers and Brown. Ian was mindful to complement the existing windows while designing the new west windows. He used Lamberts antique glass for the entire project to give the window has a glow and produce a strong colour projection.

The three lancets measure a total of 3400mm x 2100mm have become the focal point within the church.

The minister wrote:

"People were in awe! Thank you so much.
This coming Sunday I will make a lot of what you have given me as the inspiration to the window.
Congratulations and thank you very much on a job so professionally and spiritually performed."
