Mushroom by Jemma Clements

A beautiful spotted mushroom by Jemma Clements daughter of Richard Clements from Tasmania. This adorable piece displays all the hallmarks of the artist and bears the impressed signature to the base. The artist studied glass blowing with her father and many of the techniques used were developed by him although Jemma has her own individual style which I think shows in this sculpture.

Glass Eggs by Geoffrey Dickinson

These two beautiful glass eggs in blue and a purple are the creation of Geoffrey Dickinson of Elmhurst Victoria. Made from lead crystal that Geoffrey made from scratch in his studio. The colours are amazing with a richness that makes them sparkle as jewels in the sun.The light piercing through these eggs makes them look like stained glass windows.

Unicorn Lead-light Panel by Peter Lupinski

This circular lead-light panel of a unicorn was created using a Sue Daw design as the inspiration and is made with a brown streaky glass for the head and a caramel glass for the horn plus German hand made antique clear glass for the background with soft cream streaky glass for the mane. It was made as a class piece by Peter Lupinski in the late 1980’s at the then Worboy’s Glass studio New South Wales unfortunately now closed.

Large Sculptural Light by Mark Douglass

This Large sculpture is actually a modern light in clear glass with a deep wine colour swirling through the main body. The shape is almost that of an ice mountain which is melting with the top curling over, it has a height measuring 52 centimetres. When lit this unique lamp takes on a golden glow and the wine colour transforms into a burnt brown giving this piece a naturalistic appearance. Created by Mark Douglass who is well known for pushing the boundaries between art and function as can been seen in this table lamp.

Unusual Sculpture by Unknown Artist

This is a very unusual and modern art sculpture crafted by folding and layering the glass and incorporating blue chips of glass with silver foil or powder plus the uncommon addition of copper threads between the layers. The back layer is  frosted while only half of the middle layer is frosted and the other half is left  glossy as is the front layer giving this item more depth than is expected with a work that is only three and a half centimetres thick. This sculpture is not signed so I will have to wait and see if the artist or someone else recognises the work.
