Lynden Over



Lynden is one of New Zealand’s leading glass artists. His work is highly
regarded and found in a number of galleries throughout New Zealand as well
as in private and public collections worldwide. He has a Bachelor of Applied
Arts from North Tec and extensive training in glass art and sculpture. On the
completion of his study he continued to work in glass, renting a local glass
studio where he developed his own original range of collectable art glassware.
In 2002 Lynden moved to Taupo and opened Lava Glass Studio and Gallery.
Here Lynden has had the freedom to extend his production range and work
on his range of large works, creating some award-winning art glass pieces.
Lynden has developed an original range of collectable glassware, including a
range of bespoke large exhibition pieces. In the past 10 years Lynden has
created many award-winning works with a winning entry in the Norsewear
Glass Award, an ‘Excellence in Glass’ award in the Molly Morpeth Canaday
Exhibition, and his creative use of colour was acknowledged in the NZ Society
of Glass Exhibition, winning the Colour Award. He has a commissioned, public
sculpture in Taupo Town centre, and his glass sculpture garden at Lava Glass
is one of the must do tourist attractions..

Lynden uses a technique of trailing coloured glass in layers over each
piece to create a rich painterly look where each glasswork is totally
unique. The work is inspired by the spectacular and rugged New Zealand
landscape. His art glass pieces are innovative and highly unique.

“I love our New Zealand landscape. From the dramatic rugged ocean and
volcanic mountain landscapes, to the gentle rolling green hills of our rural
farmland. The colour and light of our land makes the place so unique. I
incorporate some of these existential colours of New Zealand in all my works.
Lately I have gone to the quieter places for inspiration - the estuaries,
the farmlands, and the evening sunsets.”
