glass art


My name is Alex Barthel and I'm a glass artist based in Marrickville, Sydney, Australia. I started making glass in 2011, and I specialise in kiln-formed fused and slumped glass. I love using recycled bits and pieces of windows, windscreens, marbles, bottles, and whatever I can lay my hands on. I also enjoy bringing colour into my work with art glass. 


If you're interested in my work, please get in touch using the form below. If you have a special request for a glass work let me know.


'Magura' means 'fish' in the local Aboriginal Dharug language.
