Perth Art Glass Presents

Lee Howes Images in Glass

Lee Howes

Howes with her 2015 Australia Day Award design.

Perth Art Glass has the pleasure of presenting guest artist Lee Howes. Lee will be conducting a 5 day masterclass titled "lmages in Glass”.

This masterclass will examine different methods of creating images for use in fused glass. The skills covered will include screen printing, sandblasting, decals, painting with enamels and powders.

Lee's vast experience and variety of work has led to her using a combination of methods for the best possible results in applying images to glass art. With a number of processes available to the artist it is vital to understand the intrinsic differences, equipment needed, limitations, artist considerations and costs. By Lee sharing these skills the participant will be armed with the knowledge to make the choice that best suits them.

Lee is a highly experienced Glass Artist beginning her adventure with glass in the early 90s. Winner of the 2011 Vicki Torr Memorial Prize and a 2014 finalist in the Ranamok Glass Prize, one of her most recognizable recent commissions was for the 2015 Australian of the Year awards. Lee's design was chosen from hundreds of applicants for its "stunning representation of the essence of Australia”.

Lee's versatility and experimentation is what sets her apart from other glass artists. She is an accomplished caster and fuser, and has mastered the skills of printing and painting on glass using various techniques.

Perth Art Glass is thrilled that Lee is prepared to present her only masterclass in Western Australia with us, giving our local Glass Artists the opportunity to share in her vast experience and knowledge.The participants of this workshop will gain invaluable practical experience to considerably enhance their skills and inspire them to forge ahead into new territory.
