DAVID HOBDAY

Bellarine full time glass artist David Hobday is well known in glass sculpture circles around the region.
Known for his distinctive ocean inspired style, David uses a variety of kiln formed glass techniques in his high quality sculptures.

Using only the strongest art glass imported from America, David has taught many other glass artists around the region.

Throughout my working life as a marine biologist, I also pursued a fascination for working with glass. It is no surprise therefore, that my work conveys an intimate knowledge of and inspiration from the marine environment. I started my glass journey with leadlighting in the 1970’s and have progressively experimented and developed to my glass today involving extensive use of kiln-formed or fused and slumped glass. My current work ranges from studio pieces including freestanding works, window panels and plates to larger scale sculptures and windows.

We are excited to have attracted him over to this side of Geelong to exhibit a number of spectacular artworks
