James McMurtrie's vivid glass art is characterised by clarity and luminosity. His work is both functional and sculptural. The artists explains;
"Within my professional practice I produce two distinct areas of work. One area being a range of high quality production glassware which includes bowls, platters, vases and bottles. This work is made with function in mind, while incorporating contemporary design and colours. The second aspect of my practice is of a sculptural nature and allows me to express my creative visions on a regular basis."
James has exhibited throughout Australia and his work is included in private collections in Australia, Ireland and the USA.
