John Wheeler is a local glass artist and award winning cinematographer, highly regarded both in Australia and internationally. John was inspired by glass work he discovered in Broome when filming and returned to Melbourne to learn being tutored by Geraldine Gandolofo and Brenda Page of Blue Dog Glass.
John’s work is kiln formed and each piece has two firings for up to 30 hours. The pieces are constructed from layers of glass. The colours are created with glass powders and the designs are both embedded and on the surface creating an extra sense of depth.
