Artists

Tina Cooper began her journey into the amazing world of glass blowing when she met Mark Galton. When the talents of Mark Galton and Tina Cooper came together, ‘Martini Glass’ was formed.

It all started with her being a very sickly child spending much of her early years in bed. This was no problem as long as she had a pencil and paper to allow her to draw and draw she did.

I have been working with glass for over 20 years and for the past 10 years I have been designing and creating a range of jewellery using exotic dichroic glass. I mostly sell my work to galleries, gift and jewellery shops in many states of Australia as well as internationally. I am a contemporary dichroic glass artist, creating a unique range of jewellery made by me and sold internationally from my home studio called Harmony Cottage.

 

Enhancing the collection of Tina's glass works for her Tribal Tribute and Outback Series is the art of Peter ‘Muraay Djeripi' Mulcahy. Peter is an accomplished aboriginal artist, passionately committed to his gamilaroi culture with his signature fine lines, exquisite attention to detail and deep stirring stories continuing to set him apart.

Jenni was born in Kerang Victoria and lived and was educated in Bendigo where her interest in oil painting began viewing the great Australian masters at the Bendigo Regional Art Gallery thus starting a long life love affair of viewing galleries Australia wide. Her early works were in traditional oils depicting the subjects of the Gold Mining areas and continuing this style of painting for many years.

I grew up in the south east of Ireland, an area rich in ancient crafts. At just 15 years of age I fulfilled my dream by being accepted into Waterford Crystal on a five year apprenticeship.

With the deft touch of a magician, Wolfgang Engel, Bundaberg's leading glass artist, breathes life into an amazing array of exquisitely coloured objects. From tiny penguins and mystical freeform leafy sea dragon shapes encapsulated in translucent droplets, to designer goblets for contemporary display, his enchanting art beguiles all ages.

"Exquisite", "Unique" and "Dramatic "are some of the adjectives used to describe Tina Cooper's glass sculptures. One of the leading figures in Australian Studio glass, she uses Nature - Earth, Fire, Water and Air - to create her art, reflecting her passionate relationship with the environment from which she sources her inspiration.
