Trailing coloured glass in layers over each piece is Lynden Over’s signature technique. In doing so he creates a rich painterly look where each glass work is totally unique. His pieces are inspired by the spectacular and rugged New Zealand landscape. His works are innovative and highly unique.
Lynden Over trained at North Tec in Whangārei, New Zealand. He holds a bachelor’s degree in applied arts. On the completion of his study he continued to work in glass. Lynden rented a local glass studio where he developed his own original range of collectable art glassware.
"The emotion and power of the New Zealand landscape is a continual source of inspiration for my art.
Through the medium of glass I respond to the lights and shades of our land, from the reflections of the earthy sundrenched Central Plateau through to the striking rich colours of the New Zealand coastlines.
Using the translucence and reflective qualities of glass, and the matte finish I can create pieces which change in different lights just as the landscape changes. I also work to achieve a textural quality on the surface of each piece, again reflecting the organic composition of nature. I am continually challenged by the qualities of glass developing ways to manipulate the liquid material to evoke the beauty of my place." - Lynden Over
