Christine has been working in glass for over twenty years. She lives, works and is inspired by the beauty of the natural landscape that surrounds her home on the Mid North Coast of NSW, Australia. Every piece in the Glass of Fire range is individually designed and kilnformed by Christine in her studio and often requires two or three firings to achieve the quality of depth and clarity within the pieces.
A glass artist who is well known for her eccentric use of colour, Christine entwines into her designs the watery hues and sparkle of the Pacific Ocean, the lush textures and richness of the foliage within the rainforests, the dramatic ochres and the vivid colours which capture the spirit of the Australian outback.
Christine is internationally recognised for her work in glass mosaics, hot mosaics, glass fusing and her dichroic glass jewellery designs. She is the author of many art glass design books with CKE Publications which are distributed worldwide, and travels annually to the USA as an educator teaching classes and workshops.
Christine is the recipient of numerous international awards for glass art design.
