Emma Lashmar

Emma Lashmar is a visual artist from Boorloo/Perth, passionate about the dynamic and expressive qualities of molten glass. In her studio she plays with the possibilities of this amorphous solid / fluid material, allowing the mesmerising process of heating and cooling, breathing and shaping, flux and flow to sculpt each form.

Trained in the Fine Arts (Glass) program at Monash University, Emma has exhibited widely in galleries and artist-run spaces, with works purchased for notable private collections. She has received distinguished awards and featured in exhibitions which gave flight to a series of richly rewarding residencies and technical skill development workshops in Argentina, Germany & Scotland.

Having lived interstate and overseas for a decade, Emma has returned home to Perth and reignited her professional practice here with studio residencies at Paper Mountain, ArtsHouse, Vancouver Arts Centre, and Perth Institute of Contemporary Art (PICA).

She is deeply curious about the intimate relationship we develop with the particular vessels we choose to use in our daily lives, and enjoys bringing this passion and expertise to collaborative projects for private and public spaces.
