Growing up in England, Shaw moved to Australia permanently in 2002. He’s been blowing glass for a majority of his life and has three tertiary degrees in the art of glassblowing. Tim and his family have settled in the Adelaide Hills, where he set up a hot glass studio to work out of. Shaw’s unique style challenges traditional perceptions of glass, his vessels and bowls have a sense of fluid movement that’s developed over years of practice. The exploration of bold colour and vibrant movement is prominent in Shaw’s works.
