Collection: Christina Bahrdt

Since childhood Christina enjoyed “making”, getting absorbed in the process of design and construction and feeling the thrill of seeing the finished product.  Over many years, she dabbled in different materials and techniques from textiles to metal work to ceramics, studying leadlighting

in her native Berlin before moving to Australia in the early 1980’s.

Eventually her fascination with glass took over and led me to establish STUDIO INDIGO as an Art Glass studio in Atherton,  in Far North Queensland in 1997.

I taught, undertook commissions and exhibited my work in Darwin, Canberra, Cooktown, Port Douglas and the Atherton Tablelands.  My art work is mostly inspired by the beauty of the environment around me – the colours and shapes of the Australian tropics.  Over the years, I have extended the range of techniques to include

  • Lead lighting
  • Tiffany work
  • Glass Mosaic
  • Slumping and fusing
  • Etching
  • Glass bead making
