Grant Donaldson

Profile

Grant’s artistic creativity using layers of colours, is inspired by the vast and diverse Australian landscape.
Grant has in past years been commissioned by the Crown Casino Melbourne and by the Australian Prime Ministers Department for gifts to be presented to foreign visiting dignitaries. Most recently, Grants Uluru Vase was purchased and presented to President Barrak Obama.

“This landscape is a tribute to many of the people that I have worked and knocked about with on the land. They are now ghosts walking beside me. Their love of the land, their dreaming, has soaked into my soul.” 

“As a farmer I came to feel part of the Australian landscape – my glasswork is a natural extension of that. I love the difficulties of working with glass, the dangers and thrill of exploration and experimentation – finding new and more challenging ways to express my feelings about the land. I use simple forms as my ‘canvas’ to express my interpretation of the landscape.” 

Grant started his career in glass in 1990, assisting his wife Eileen Gordon to establish the Gordon Studio Glassblowers. Essentially untrained, Grant’s progress as a glass artist has been remarkable. By 1994 Grant had already started working full time on his own unique range of glassware. Today he is recognised as one of Australia’s most experimental and exciting glassblowers.
