The Creative Partnership of Anne Clifton and Peter Bowles

Peter Bowles  is recognised as one of Australia’s finest makers.  Renowned for his  technical mastery, his inventive approach to his craft and a dedication to a  practice that spans object making, contemporary craft and public art.

A prolific and fastidious artist, he has exhibited,    lectured, researched and made work throughout the UK, Europe,   Australia, Canada and the USA.  

Anne Clifton brings with her an unparalleled enthusiasm  and a sense of wonder to her work. Her innate curiosity drives her practice as  a glass artist, and has taken her throughout  Europe, Australia, Asia and the USA.

Her commitment, vision and deep regard for community  engagement have positioned her as a significant member of the international  studio glass movement.

Combined, Peter and Anne work as Glass Manifesto - as much an idea as it is a working studio. 

Located in northern Tasmania, Glass Manifesto has garnered an international reputation as one of Australia’s leading independent contemporary glass studios. Peter and Anne work tirelessly to produce an extraordinary range of unique and exquisitely made work for the discerning collector.
