James McMurtrie’s glass art reflects an intimate connection with Victoria's Grampians District in South Eastern Australia.
Growing up on his family’s farm near Stawell and now living in the shadow of the Mount William Range in Pomonal, James' life is seeped in the sights, sounds and smells of the beautiful Western Victorian landscape. Backgrounded by the majestic Grampians Mountains (Gariwerd), his art reflects the textures and forms wrought by powerful forces of nature.
“Working with tools, similar to that dating back to the first century B.C. fills me with a sense of history and tradition of the old techniques. Glass blowing proves to be an exciting medium with which I can experiment and express my ideas with immediate results on a daily basis.”
