LINKS: Australian Glass and the Pacific Northwest - 2:27 pm
Museum of Glass, 1801 Dock St, Tacoma, WA
Links: Australian Glass and the Pacific Northwest tells two related stories that began in the 1970s. In 1974, American artist Richard Marquis travelled to Australia to lecture, demonstrate and build glass studios at the invitation of the Australia Council for the Arts. Marquis’ relationship with Australian artist Nick Mount initiated a lineage of blown glass artists in Australia. The second story centers on kiln-formed glass and the relationship between Klaus Moje, founder of the glass workshop at Australian National University in Canberra, and the Bullseye Glass Company in Portland, OR. In 1979 Moje met Boyce Lundstrom, co-founder of Bullseye Glass Company, while at a workshop at Pilchuck Glass School in Stanwood, WA. At Moje’s instigation, Bullseye Glass Company developed a line of compatible, fusible glass that solved long-standing technical problems. This glass is widely used by Australian artists today. Info:
