Amanda Louden creates beautiful blown glass vessels decorated with Botanical themes, Marine life, Frogs and Insects.

Amanda Louden is a hot glass blower specialising in decorative sandblasting. She graduated from Chisholm Institute (now Monash University) in 1983 with a Bachelor of Art, Ceramic Design with a major in Hot Glass. Since graduating she has continued to blow her own glass which she uses as a canvas for her own designs. She has had several successful solo exhibitions and exhibited in many group shows throughout Australia.

She hires a hot glass studio for a few weeks a year where she is able to make pieces to a preconceived colour and shape spending the remaining months decorating the glass. The process involves masking pieces with tape then drawing images on the surface. The tape is then cut and areas removed before the piece is sandblasted. This time-consuming process is repeated several times to achieve depth and intricacy with engraving often used to add detail.

Her themes include, frogs, insects and marine life but her main focus is botanicals with an emphasis on Australia’s diverse flora. Her pieces have a distinctly Australian feel making them ideal gifts of protocol. International collectors often purchase her work as a memory of time spent in Australia but mostly the works are purchased by collectors who share a love of the subject and admire the artistry of Amanda’s original designs.

Her work is now included in many private collections throughout the world. Notable collections include, The National Art Glass Collection Wagga,  the Modern Glass Collection of the Hamilton Regional Gallery and Government House, Canberra.
