Eamonn Vereker’s Story

“I love it here because all around me I see the long view of the hills, the sweep of the coastline and the passage of time. I believe aspects of these observations are reflected in my work.”

Eamonn Vereker's Story

Eamonn Verker - Glass Artist

Eamonn Vereker Glass is an independent glassblowing studio and gallery located in Norwood, South Australia which opened in 1994.

Eamonn was born in County Kilkenny, Ireland and through the eyes of his childhood, he discovered the beauty of nature and art which captured his imagination. Eamonn has always had a fine appreciation for good design and has loved working with his hands.

His desire to channel his creative energy led to him securing a highly sought-after apprenticeship in glass making at the world famous, Waterford Glass, Ireland and he qualified as a Master Cutter and Design in 1976.  He immigrated to Australia in 1987.

Eamonn welcomes you to come into the Studio and Gallery, view the stunning collections on display and watch glassblowing in action.

He takes great pride in opening up people's eyes to the colours and wonders of nature through creating unique and beautiful pieces; each one a new expression of colour, light, warmth, beauty and fragility.

Browse Eamonn's Glass Collection with his signature ranges of glass art - Outback, Rainforest, Reef, Flinders, and recent additions - Newgrange and Special Edition pieces; as well as his beautifully handcrafted Glass Birds, Penguins, Fish, Dolphins, Wombats and Koalas.

 

In Eamonn's words:

“I love it here because all around me I see the long view of the hills, the sweep of the coastline and the passage of time. I believe aspects of these observations are reflected in my work.”
