I'm Joe Stanaway born on January 21, 1971. My dream is to own and operate a hot glass studio.
I have been working towards my goal. Constructing and acquiring the necessary pieces of equipment to make a hot glass studio however I need one more crucial piece of equipment. The rest of the prize money would go towards materials and operating costs.
Stanaway Studios would offer Artistic Freedom for All; through classes and workshops, seasonal production line and artistic installations. These three components would bring in revenue to keep the artistic fires burning. All of which would be supported by my love and passion for the arts, many years of experience in the glass art industry accompanied by a masters degree in glass and architectural glass design from The University of Edinburgh in Scotland.
