Tillie Burden



”A native of Australia, but having been based in Scandinavia for almost 10 years, my work bears the aesthetic traces of all the places I have called home, from the Australian love of colour and vibrancy to the muted simplicity of Scandinavia.

Through my works in glass I attempt to discover new ways of expressing the material while remaining rooted in craftsmanship.  With the ever-expanding possibilities of glass being examined, I remain at the glassblowers’ bench. Although not strictly using traditional glassmaking techniques, my practice is shaped by the cultural inheritance that comes with glass. I seek both poetry and frivolity in the objects I create as a way of providing an antidote to the focused immersion that is required in the engagement of glassmaking.”
