Galia Amsel – Expressing Movement in Glass

Galia will be presenting an intensive 6 day workshop which will focus on

expressing movement of glass in a cast form using colour and texture.

Students will produce 2 pieces, one made with Bullseye Glass and the other with Gaffer Glass,

learning how to texturize the outer surface to produce finished pieces

(these are samples of Galia’s and not necessarily what will be created within the workshop).

Initially she trained in industrial ceramic design at Middlesex Polytechnic, giving her the model and mould making

skills she still uses in her work today.  The ideas and technical skills she developed at the Royal College of Art

are central to the evolution of curved and sweeping forms she creates.

Galia is represented by Adrian Sassoon in Europe and America, Koru-HK Gallery in Asia, 

Sabbia Gallery in Australia, Trish Clark Gallery in North Island NZ, Milford Galleries South Island NZ. 

She has also exhibited at Braggiotti Galley, Clara Scremini Gallery and Bullseye Gallery. 

Her work is represented in many international public collections including the V&A in London.

Galia also has a wealth of teaching experience from running workshops in England and New Zealand

and has done many Commission art works for high profile businesses, including The Royal Caribbean Cruise Line. 

Over the last 30 years Galia has received numerous awards for her glass sculptures.
