Lava Glass Studio and Art Glass Gallery in Taupo
In 2002 Lynden moved to Taupo and opened Lava Glass Studio and Gallery. Here Lynden has had the freedom to extend his production range. He started to work on his range of large works, creating some award-winning art glass pieces.
Trailing coloured glass in layers over each piece is Lynden Over’s signature technique. In doing so he creates a rich painterly look where each glass work is totally unique. His pieces are inspired by the spectacular and rugged New Zealand landscape. His works are innovative and highly unique.
