Ann Robinson is an internationally significant glass artist and an acclaimed innovator who has been at the forefront of the extraordinary achievement of New Zealand glass. She is considered a pioneer of the lost wax casting technique and is sought after as a teacher and lecturer on this subject.
Robinson’s cast glass pieces have a commanding presence and embody a feeling of grace and beauty. She gathers inspiration from the natural world incorporating the geometries and colours of native flora in her pieces.
The power of Ann Robinson’s work comes from its bold simplicity, its vivid colouring and its unique ability to capture and hold light. She admits to being seduced by the material itself and declares her aim is ‘to make stunning things in glass.’
