Meet the Maker: Bëuy. From a family of well-known Canberra based artists (printmaker father Jorg Schmeisser and textile designer mother Keiko Amenomori Schmeisser), Tae was born in Australia and educated in glass, ceramics, gold and silver in Australia and Japan. Taë combines vibrant colours and contemporary techniques with traditional materials to create modern, accessible and affordable wearable glass art works. Her work focuses on the often-overlooked beauty and humour in everyday iconography, language and landscapes.
