Michael Waysmith lives in the beautiful city of Wanganui in the lower North Island of New Zealand. He currently works out of the publicly accessible hotshop at the Wanganui Glass School. Michael believes glass is a unique medium because it can colour, shape, bend and reflect light. In its purest form, as clear glass, it is invisible, seen only by its effect on the light that passes through it.

Michael is currently intrigued by the limitless possibilities that exist in using colour and pattern via cane and murrine. The process of consciously composing complex and intricate tessellating patterns in two dimensions, before expanding these into a three dimensional blown form is breathtaking and exhilarating at the same time. He likes this analogy with music: The spectrum is like an octave, and colours are like musical notes. When consciously arranged in a harmonious composition, beautiful music for the eyes can arise in glass via the interplay of light with pattern, colour and form. The impetus behind his work is the joy he derives in creating new and unique pieces as he explores this infinite arena. Michael’s work is a documentation of his exploration of glass as well as his attempt to make beautiful music along the way.
