Chris Fahey is a glass artist specialising in fused art glass, dichroic glass jewellery and mosaics. Her works are inspired by nature and the beauty of the environment in which she lives. Chris enjoys the extrapolation of images into abstract artworks using colour and texture to express her feeling for an object or scene.
Chris has been working with glass as an artistic medium for the past 17 years and has continually developed her skills over this time by extensive self education and experimentation, attending workshops and assisting fellow professional glass artists.
The art of kiln formed glass can be quite challenging, there is a real science behind the process of getting large amounts of glass to perform the way you want them to. Chris thoroughly enjoys this aspect of glass fusing and loves the challenge of melding her initial artistic inspirations, working with the raw materials and then calculating firing schedules to realise her objective – a unique work of art.
Chris enjoys sharing her skills and knowledge of glass and mosaics and runs regular workshops enjoyed by many and resulting in stunning artworks for all participants.
She has had several solo exhibitions and regularly exhibits her works at local galleries and has also participated in many collaborative exhibitions. Chris’s works are held in private and public collections both within Australia and overseas.
