Glass + Sculpture

Rodger has worked with glass since 2010, when he undertook lamp-working workshops with Misje de Vogel at Canberra Glassworks, and at Peter Minson’s studio in Binalong NSW, inspiring him to set up a home studio.

In 2016 he commenced working as a studio assistant for artist Elizabeth Kelly of Studio Tangerine, where he has developed skills in lapidary work, sculpture, and design.

He also has gained experience in drop casting, pressing, and colour glass chemistry of hot glass. Working with Kelly, he has gained experience in practical fabrication techniques in many mediums, aspects of contemporary sculpture, and architectural commissions.
