Llewelyn Ash has been working in Glass for four years, learning to glass blow at the University of South Australia. Prior to discovering Glass he painted and created etching from drawings. Llewelyn now incorporates his printmaking designs onto the glass creating a distinctive and unique design.
The imagery on the blown glass forms are in response to the landscape surrounding him. These are particular landscapes, mainly coastal, ones which contain memories, suggestions of hope, along with connections to the past and future. Landscapes which symbolize and help define belonging, longing and personal change are a focus to his work. Llewelyn comes from a background in printmaking and uses the graphic qualities of line to express ideas. In the linear work, the formal compositional elements of wood engraving and linocuts are incorporated with the Japanese device of magnifications (as used in their ceramic decoration) to show details.
His work will take you on a Journey.
