Mary Louise White


I am grateful for opportunities to communicate through the languages of art, including music, drama, literature, dance, and the visual arts. They speak directly to the heart, often without the need for words. My studio practice now concentrates primarily on cast glass.

In my practice I am concerned with composition, design, rhythm, movement, form, line, harmony, colour, balance, silence and stillness…and the stories and messages they convey when combined with purpose.

My stories are often about relationships: how we relate to, and honour and support one another, and our home, Planet Earth.

I am inspired by how the presence of beauty and art changes us. I am grateful to have studied glass with many makers at various studios, including the Corning Studio, USA, Northlands Creative, Scotland, Evelyn Dunstan Glass Studio, New Zealand, Karl Harron Glass Studio, Ireland, and in 2017 earned a masters certificate in Glass from The Australian National University School of Art and Design.
