Tom Rowney: Adventurine Spirit

Showing 9 March to 7 May 2023

Canberra Glassworks presents an engaging selection of recent works by glass artist Tom Rowney.

With a focus on Venetian traditions, Rowney conjures amazing shapes, textures, and patterns, transforming the everyday into objects of desire. Always pushing boundaries, Rowney is well known for his cones, cups, spheres, and bud vases created with stunning colourings including aventurine green and ruby red. With an eye to bling and frippery,

Rowney combines classic elements of glass blowing with enchantment and style. Daring form and structured contemporary shapes are embellished with meticulous fine linework and shimmering texture, pushing the functional into a fluid aesthetic.
