Dr. Tony Hanning is an internationally recognised glass artist whose work is represented in all major collections in Australia and many overseas collections including the V&A Museum in London and the Tacoma Art Museum in the USA. Hanning is renowned as the first contemporary Australian artist to work extensively with the cameo glass technique, an art-form originating in Ancient Rome. Tony’s cameo vessels are created from layers of different coloured glass, which are then intricately carved, engraved and sandblasted to reveal varying colour & density of light. Through the carved layers a beautiful, magical image emerges back-lit with light emanating from within the vessel.
