Originally from Victoria, Hannah Gason moved to Canberra to work as a cartographer. After an introduction to glass through a number of workshops, Hannah enrolled at the ANU School of Art and in 2015 graduated with a Bachelor of Visual Arts with Honours and was awarded a University Medal. Reflecting her interest in mapping, Hannah’s glass works explore depth, light and perspective and suggest imagined landscapes. Through the use of kiln forming processes, Hannah creates complex combinations of fragments of colour, shape and gestural markings resulting in loosely-structured fields.
Hannah has been an artist in residence at the Bullseye Glass Company, a visiting artist at Berlin Glas, a teaching assistant at the Corning Museum of Glass and participant at North Lands Creative Glass in Scotland. Working from her studio at the Canberra Glassworks, Hannah has exhibited nationally and internationally, with work housed in the Australian Parliament House Art Collection, the Australian National Art Glass Collection and the ANU Art Collection.
