Cindy Poole has been working with glass since 1995, and is self employed as a professional glass artist. Her body of work encompasses a diverse range of kiln-fired glasswork including bespoke and conceptual artworks & sculpture, contemporary designer glass jewellery, functional & decorative glass objects, unique giftware and Australian souvenirs. Commissioned work includes corporate awards, client gifts, architectural and public artwork.
Cindy’s creativity and craftsmanship has been recognized at both a local and state level and her artwork is represented by a number of galleries throughout Australia.
Both coloured and dichroic art glass, glass frit, glass powders and recycled float glass have been used to maximise the unique and varied colour effects achieved as a result of layering and combining the glass palette. More recently Cindy has applied the additional techniques of sandblasting and the use of enamels, digital imagery and sand inclusions. Compatible art glass is used exclusively when combining glasses and fully refined firing schedules ensure that each creation is quality assured. Download a copy of Cindy Poole’s CV here.

I am challenged through the manipulation of both warm & cold glass techniques.
Often my jewellery has been created as an extension of the images inherent in other artworks. A micro snapshot, maybe an entire image and often just a unique form taken shape from a random vision…”
