Born in Yarram, Victoria, Robert Wynne studied Visual Arts at Monash University, Majoring in Ceramics, before going on to complete a Master’s Degree in glass at California State University. On returning to Australia, Robert established his career as an independent glass artist based in Sydney.
Whilst exploring ideas for professional development, Robert saw the opportunity to expand the hub of dynamic glass artists’ work in Sydney, which led to establishing his Denizen Glass Design Studio. Started by Robert in 1991, Denizen Glass Design has provided a launching point for many of Australia’s well known glass artists, including Ben Edols, Kathy Elliott, Matthew Curtis, Richard Whitely and Bettina Visentin who are now enjoying international acclaim and has contributed much to the current popularity of Australian glass art.
Over the years Robert’s preoccupation with forms has followed many diverse constructions in his sculptural work and this is combined with a concentrated attraction to surface treatment and precise iridised surface patterning.
Robert’s studio line is distinguished by elegant, contemporary shapes each piece blown freely, without the use of moulds, primarily from a recycled, optical brilliant glass that has been specially formulated at the Denizen Glass Studio.
Robert Wynne is a pioneer of studio glass in Australia and continues to push the boundaries, creating unique and arresting glass pieces.
