TRIBAL TRIBUTE: These unique pieces are inspired by our indigenous people’s relationship to our Earth Mother. The Tribal Tribute Series is a collaborative work featuring Tina and her Hot Glass Team, Muraay’s indigenous brushwork and the beadwork of Gary Lisle. These powerful vessels speak of our ancient ancestors. The Tribal Tribute Series has proved highly collectable with many pieces finding homes all over Australia and more moving overseas! Tina has created a couple of glass didgeridoos for local well known artist, Adrian Ross. You can see one of these amazingly powerful instruments @ Illume now!

The Tribal Goddess awaits! These vessels could have been unearthed from some forgotten civilization long gone. A range of these urns can be seen at Illume Creations. Some of these gorgeous Goddesses are adorned with intricate roses, whilst others have an array of hand made beads. A number of these unique hand blown artifacts are heading for the prestigious National Liberty Museum in United States. [Click here] to enlarge.

SUNRISE SERIES: The Sunrise Series was born as a response to the Tsunami. Tina wished to create these pieces as a symbol of hope. The Sunrise effect is created by layering each of the colours to create a surreal Sunrise scene Tina has recently expanded her range of colours in this series to include pieces from monochromatic to multi colour! This is a much sought after series.

LAMPWORK: Owner Shiralee Cooper has selected a bevy of handmade beauties to tempt you. Illume now has a collection of glass sculptures by Wolfgang Engel. Wolfie’s technique called "Lamp Work" uses specially imported handmade glass tubes of many lively colours. This technique is combined with the skill of a master craftsman/artist/engineer to blend century old traditions of glass blowing with an appreciation and love of the shape and colour of Australian flora and fauna.

You will discover a colourful range of glass pens, perfume bottles and tea light holders on display. Illume also features a large range of locally made lampwork beads and hand crafted jewellery! [Click here] to enlarge.
