Australian Contemporary Art

Glass

Gannon House Gallery exhibits glass by many glass artists living and working in Australia. Noel Hart produces beautiful work with a sandblasted finish, featuring the colours and textures of Australian Parrots. Grant Donalson and Eileen Gordon have Gordon studios in Victoria and produce a range of art glass including large vessels and platters. Brendan French works in Adelaide.

“It is extremely satisfying working with glass in its molten state. It is immediate and

spontaneous yet I am increasingly aware of a historical relevance for its function. My blown vessels concentrate more on technical dexterity and colour applications than on constructing narratives. My aim with this work is to be playful in personalising technique.

It’s a totally different thing when working with glass cold, but no less

satisfying. Introducing kilnforming and casting processes is invigorating the scope of my

practice. Time is stretched in a very different thread. I recognise the true evolution of my commitment lies here.” – Brendan French
