  Maureen Williams is a widely respected artist at the forefront of Australian glass practice. With blown glass as a three-dimensional canvas for her abstract paintings, Maureen uses high-temperature enamel paint that is worked into linear engravings and sandblasted areas. The paint is then covered with successive layers of clear glass, achieving great depth of colour and tone beneath the smooth surface.

Maureen’s work explores “...the path that we take throughout lives, the land and our relationships. Both real and imaginary views of the land and ourselves within it create fragments of a sense of place and being.” Maureen has had numerous solo and group exhibitions both in Australia and overseas with work collected by many institutions including the National Gallery of Australia, National Gallery of Victoria, Artbank and Die Neue Sammlung Museum (Munich, Germany).
