Amanda has been working with hot glass since
completing her degree in 1983. Whilst her main
focus is in decoration, Amanda continues to blow
and form her own glass. She hires a hot glass studio
for a few weeks a year, then spends the other
months decorating the glass.
Forming her own glass allows her to make pieces to
a preconceived colour and shape. Then the design
is hand drawn and sandblasted onto the piece, often
repeated several times to achieve depth and
intricacy. Engraving is sometimes used to add
detail. These procedures are very time consuming.
Her decoration encompasses many themes but is
mainly botanically oriented with an emphasis on the
Australian native flora. Designs are chosen to
complement the shape of the plates, bowls,
cylinders, vases and spheres.
