Kristin McFarlane – Glass Artist

I first saw the work of glass artist Kristin McFarlane at an exhibition at Sabia gallery while I was in Sydney for the JMGA conference in 2006.

Kristin’s work appealed to me instantly because of her use of text and print making techniques in her fused glass pieces, her use of text and line work in the imagery is mysterious and captivating.

kristin_2Kristin worked as a graphic Artist before returning to university to complete a Graduate Diploma and Master of Fine Arts in glass. Kristin considers glass a perfect medium for allowing a permanent memory of an event, time and place to be recorded in a sculptural work or piece of jewellery to hold, treasure and revisit at will. Her objective is to “capture memory”.
