Lynette Cain

Lynette is a Nelson based cast-glass artist.

Her art practice reflects on the relationship between objects, memories, and one’s sense of identity. Through her work she explores both the process of casting glass and the conflicting attributes of glass as a means to express ideas.

Her glass art is created using the lost wax method of glass casting. With the many variants involved in this process, and the hand finishing, each glass piece ends up being individual, with its own distinctive qualities. She enjoys the challenges of the casting process, and aims within her work to create pieces which accentuate the hand-made characteristics, and tactile quality of each piece of glass.

Lynette completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts through NMIT in 2005, and for over 15 years has created art from her Nelson studio.
