James Dodson Glass – Tasmanian Glassblowers
Master Glassblower – James Dodson glass professional life began as an architectural draftsman drawing other peoples dream environments. I rarely saw or touched the finished product, and then discovered hot glass in London.I studied at the Orrefors Glass School in Sweden and worked in Greenwich, London before returning home.
Molten glass has an undeniable seductive quality and for me the inspiration is endless.
Tasmanian Glassblowers was born following my return to Tasmania. Initially established in a shed at historic Clarendon House, marriage and family expansion saw it relocate to its current home in Breadalbane.
Hot glass has allowed me the privilege of creating works to be held in peoples home or work environments. Each piece is individually blown and sculptured in the open studio, allowing the tangible creativity to satisfy any audience and me.
The range of James Dodson glass figurines include the Australian birds, Penguins, Tasmanian Devils and glass paperweights. James is also known for his Champagne and Wine Cones which come in clear, pink or blue glass. The Design Centre stocks an extensive range of James Dodson glass and most items are available to buy on-line.Shop for Tasmanian Glassblowers Products
