  • Aaron Micallef

Aaron Micallef is a glass artist who uses hot glass techniques to create simple blown forms, and cutting and surface treatments to influence the interaction of light with each piece. He is inspired by the movement of light through glass, and ultimately, the capture of its fleeting presence. Aaron’s hot glass practice is accordingly complemented by photography, reinterpreting glass through the camera lens and capturing the subtleties of the diffusion, diffraction, reflection and refraction of light through blown and cut glass. Aaron often collaborates with glass artist Joanna Bone who has a unique style of working, incising the surface of simple glass forms that have been created hot from pre-formed, multi-layered and multi-coloured glass.
