I recently began an adventure meeting and taking portraits of Melbourne Makers. This is the first part of the series showcasing hand crafters and artisans in their studio’s and the tools they most frequently use. I hope to bring you more talented people of our beautiful city. This is an ongoing project, so please enjoy the ride!

The first in the lineup of wonderfully talented Melbourne makers is Sarah Dingwall, a flame worker from Mornington to not only be a part of the series but as a profile for an upcoming short documentary film I’ve been working on. Sarah’s work is as wonderfully enchanting and energetic as she is herself, so it’s no wonder I’ve drawn a lot of inspiration from her throughout this process. In speaking to Sarah I’ve realised that these pieces are created from her wildly inventive imagination and also from her own fascination with glass itself. It’s subtle and sneaky but I’m also personally drawn into the way we view nature in a totally new way through her work.
You can find Sarah’s studio at the Commonfolk Cafe in Mornington or online at https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/sarahdeee
