Faerie Fleur was born and raised in Melbourne in a historic house full of antiques. She was the youngest of 5 siblings. Her mother was an antique dealer, and her passion was collecting glass objects.
Her passion for Glass Blowing started when she started creating Leadlights with Ian Readshaw as a hobby.
Along with this magical beginning, she became the owner of Tamborine Mountain’s “Fairies on the Walk”.
Seven years of Faerie face painting, storytelling and fairy design.
Since then, she started creating a foresty atmosphere in her colorful mushroom gardens around her glass studio.
Faerie’s first introduction to Kiln Fired Works took her to study Dichroic Glass, and that was the beginning of her journey as a professional Glass Blower. She also is qualified as a torch worker. (lampwork)
This fun method is ideal for people who want to understand the basics of glass blowing as it’s a more accessible form of glass creations, like jewelry, ornimental and small sculptures.
Faerie is a professional who loves a good challenge, and she is always pushing herself to discover new,different and exciting ways. These ways are portrayed in her workshops, as she teaches the young and old with innovative easy to follow techniques.
