Emma Lashmar fell in love with hot glass processes as a Visual Arts student at Curtin University, and inspired by the mesmerising medium, then transferred her studies to major in Glass at Monash, in Melbourne. Following the completion of her studies in 2009, Emma’s practice evolved to create vast site-specific installation works. These large scale projects incorporated a multitude of blown glass forms into tensioned, suspended fields of connected elements.
In subsequent years, the artist exhibited widely in solo and group shows in public and commercial galleries and artist-run spaces in Melbourne and Sydney, and had work purchased for notable private collections in Victoria and New South Wales. A Freedman Foundation Scholarship in 2012 assisted her to undertake extensive research, studio residencies and exhibition opportunities in Buenos Aires and Berlin, and develop her technical skill in a masterclass at Northlands Creative, Scotland.
Emma has enjoyed working on many commissioned projects, creating bespoke lighting and tableware designs for iconic Australian fine dining venues, including Vue de Monde, Penfolds Magill Estate, Gertrude Enoteca and Tedesca Osteria.
