Sean O’Donoghue was born in Ireland, 1959. At age 15 he began passionately pursuing what was to become a life-long career working with glass. Sean became a master-blower at the renowned Waterford Crystal, where he estimates he made over one and a half million pieces, including: stemware, vases, bowls, decanters and chandeliers during his 15 years working there.
Seeking a new challenge, Sean moved to Adelaide, Australia in 1987. He began working with well-known glass artist Nick Mount before moving to Melbourne to gain experience in a number of glass-blowing studios, including Richard Morrell’s studio and the Meat Market Craft Centre. In 2006 Sean moved to Noosa, Queensland, where he set up his own studio, ‘Hot Stuff glass studio & Gallery’, the only electric glass studio in Australia and one of only a handful in the world. Motivated by his concern for waste and the environment, Sean uses recycled solar panels to make glass.
Throughout Sean’s career he’s successfully attended and sold works at craft shows throughout Australia and the USA. During 1997 – 2007, Sean regularly exhibited at shows in New York and San Francisco. In 2013 he spent three months teaching glass-blowing in Nairobi; an exciting experience sharing his skills on the edge of a National Park.
Sean’s studio in Noosa is open to the public by appointment; his extensive range of exquisite scent bottles, sculptures, bowls and vases may be sourced in galleries across Australia. Sean’s works are unique, individually signed and very collectable.
