Patrick Wong Born Australia 1967
My work is hot-worked solid glass, influenced by both classical and primitive traditions of sculpture. I am interested in the body as the external expression of an internal existence. In addition to my sculptures I make a range of colourful retro inspired vases, paperweights and sent bottles.
