Kirsten Laken from Spirit of Glass has designed the Green Gown Award Australasia, and ACTS Award of Excellence trophies since 2011, creating a beautiful, truly unique trophy to celebrate the sustainability achievements of our Award winners. Made from 100% recycled glass, coloured pieces collected over an extended period from many different sources, each Award is unique in its design and manufacture.
Kirsten works out of her studio in the heart of the Dandenong Ranges in Victoria and has a passion for glass, working many techniques both modern and traditional. She is an award winning glass artist who is trade certified and has over 20 years of experience. “I love to create works which are unique, trapping organic matter within kiln-fired glass and using found or recycled materials.” Her passion for glass is portrayed throughout her work, showcased and marketed throughout Australia.
Kirsten designs award trophies, jewellery, house hold items, art pieces and much more. She also runs leadlight and glass art classes from her studio. For further information please visit the Spirit of Glass website.
