"Glass of the Caesars @ 30: 1987-2017" conference in the British Museum, 3rd-4th November

Paper at the "Glass of the Caesars @ 30" conference, British Museum, London. I have been invited to share my research on ancient Roman cameo glass. For the past 18 months, I have been leading a multidisciplinary team at the Australian National University across Art, Physics-Engerining and Classics, as we research a fragment of ancient Roman cameo glass. Using my studio skills in combination with a high resolution computer tomography scanner, I have been able to observe details on and within the glass that shed new light on manufacturing methods for this extraordinary chapter in Roman Crafts.

BECon Conference in Portland

June 22-24, 2017

I'll be presenting two lectures at the upcoming BECon Conference in Portland USA; one of the legacy of Klaus Moje AO, and also on fascinating research I have been exploring with regard to ancient Roman Cameo glass. Prior to the conference, I'll be delivering a short 2 day workshop on developing syllabi for short course teaching in glass. This will be an excellent conference.
