Brenda Page 


Brenda was introduced to glass while studying fine art at RMIT, after completing her first year of study there she transferred to Monash University where she graduated in 1992 with a Bachelor of Ceramic Design majoring in glass. Over the years she has continued to develop her practise to encompass a variety of kiln forming techniques with a focus on image making in and on glass. More recently she has started to work with screen printing on paper and metal.
