The thoughts of a glassblower

I wear many hats, but glassblower has been a long running favourite.

I wear many hats, but glassblower has been a long running favourite. My love for glassblowing continues to grow every day. I love the excitement of seeing an object take shape, the intensity of the fire, the rich history of the craft and the beauty found within its raw materials. It's a medium I am truly passionate about and I'm so proud to share it with others.

Before going solo, I had worked in a few glassblowing studios—a gamut of experience that allowed me to hone my craft. With over ten years of experience, I now operate my own small business, Tara Blown Glass. I offer a selection of home decor, cremation memorial keepsake and when time and creativity permits – monster sculptures!

my favourite things

  • My family—a supportive partner, two incredible boys and a loving dog
  • Good food that tastes great and nourishes the body
  • A lighthearted attitude, a positive outlook and a sense of humour
  • Colour! The whole rainbow–all the time!
