-The Artist and the Maker-

To celebrate more than 100 years of their collective journey in glass ‘The Artist and the Maker’ brings Peter Minson and Patricia Parker together to create collaborative work that reflects their quite separate artistic journeys.

Peter Minson's career in glass began with his apprenticeship in his family's scientific glass blowing studio that has evolved to the creation of his own world-recognised art. Peter is acknowledged as a master of his craft as a Lampworker.

From 1970 to 1983 in conjunction to Lampwork Peter operated a furnace in Sydney and then in Paris Creek Adelaide. In 1979 he was invited to study Furnace glassblowing at the Orrefors Glass School in Sweden. Peter continues to be much sought after as a teacher and mentor at his Binalong Studio.

Patricia's journey in glass began in 1978 with classes at a local stained glass outlet. From 1982 to 1994 Patricia was represented by one of Canberra’s leading Galleries after which she opened the Studio Gallery at her residence in Duffy. Kiln-formed glass was added to her practice in 1999. Patricia was recognised by Craft ACT as an Accomplished Practitioner in 2000 and to this day is an active participant in the Canberra Glass community.
