australian glass artists respond to the tree / by Hannah Gason

Today I enjoyed visiting The Tree, an exhibition curated by Clare Belfrage that is currently showing at the Canberra Glassworks until 18 May 2014.  I liked seeing the great variety of interpretations of the theme.  Below are some of the works that particularly piqued my interest.


The Tree features new work by 25 emerging and established practitioners.  The exhibition presents a myriad of artistic interpretations of the tree.  Approaches include humour, metaphor, studies of nature, sustainability and materiality.
