John White is an artist whose practice is infused by the wonders of discovery and history, that which has shaped and influenced our world. He likens this diverse subject matter to how his life has taken many paths, and believes that his heritage, working career and education have all stemmed from his relationship as an artisan with the tools of his trades and practices.
John threads these ideals through his sculptural works and production line, both of which encompass his passion for craftsmanship and making.
Graduating with a BVA in glass with honours from Australian National University School of Art, John is a Canberra craftsman who maintains a studio at the Canberra Glassworks. His accomplishments since graduating have been significant, and include being awarded 2015 Ausglass Vicki Torr prize for a solo exhibition at Sabbia Gallery, and 2016 finalist National Emerging Art Glass Prize.
