Kiln-formed Glass

Rose Hamilton  

Rose has been a resident of Poatina since 2001.  She has always had a love for Arts and Crafts and over the past 18 years has been a member of the Basket Makers of Tasmania.  You’ll see her large willow sculptures when you come to Poatina.


After taking a kiln-formed glass class while studying Contemporary Art at UTAS, and the kiln-formed elective at FATA in 2019 Rose was inspired to take up a studio space at the Poatina Arts Centre focusing on kiln-formed glass. This has led to teaching kiln-formed glass at Capstone College.

Rose loves to encourage others to have a go.

Kiln-formed Glass - am

Try a range of different kiln-formed glass techniques, assembling cold bits of glass and melting it together in a kiln. Suitable for beginners and the more experienced who wish to experiment with further techniques.  Learn to cut and shape glass, fire it to fuse the different coloured glasses together, then slump it into various forms. We can weave glass, create designs, frit or paint then slump into dishes, brooches or contemporary art pieces.
