Now in his state-of-the-art electric studio (the only one in the Southern hemisphere), Sean has created a glass ball, as a paperweight that looks down on Australia, as if you are looking through the clouds from outer space. It is a design Sean has been perfecting over the last few years.
The paperweight is made from 100% recycled glass and the studio in which it is made is emission free. Sean uses coloured glass particles with steel tools to create images on the glass. The material Sean uses was designed by NASA and used in satellites.”
Sean has created a wonderful range of variations using this technique, maps of Australia, handprints, we are hoping for the Brisbane River and the Story Bridge.
