30 Jan Stephen Skillitzi: glass artist
Well known both in Australia and overseas, Stephen Skillitzi is now a member at Kuoni Creative gallery. We have a number of his pieces inlcluding platters, bowls, vases and glass sculptures.
Credited as “the father of Australian Studio Glass” from the days when he brought back his American-inspired ideas and applied them to his work in his South Australian studio, Skillitzi has become known for his creative pieces as a distinct move away from glassworks that were traditionally Asian-influenced.
He began exhibiting his work in 1966 and is still producing his glass art in 2018, as well as preparing for a retrospective exhibition of his work at Gallery M.
