Nick Wirdnam is a highly regarded glass artist who incorporates into his work a language of recurring symbols and motifs on which we often project a special meaning. The work in this exhibition explores the idea of the charm and Nick has exquisitely sculpted everyday objects that have an “historical association of good fortune, hope and consolation as amulets or lucky charms. These charms are symbols that offer hope and protection.” Nick’s work is in the collections of the National Gallery of Australia, Queensland Art Gallery, National Art Glass Collection at Wagga Wagga Art Gallery and Nijima Glass Art Museum (Japan).
