Mark Thiele


Fascination with my work began early in my career. Winning Australia’s most prestigious glass prize in 2001 helped catapult my work and reputation as one of Australia’s leading glass artists. I received a grant from the Australia Council in 2006, enabling me to spend time in America to promote my work to some of the most prestigious glass galleries in the world.

Now I am producing exciting new pieces in response to my love of nature: reinterpreting and creating three dimensional physical, tangible artforms, vessels which translate stature, poise and beauty. I am excited about the direction my work is taking and the interest it is generating. Through my exploration, I feel I have developed my own style and a way of working that is unique and beautiful.
