Lynden Over is a highly regarded and award-winning New Zealand glass artist.

His style is striking and unusual. His inspiration comes from the distinctive and dramatic New Zealand landscape; its geology and its light.  The work itself awakening our senses.

Lynden trained at Northland polytechnic where he completed the diploma of applied arts, majoring in glass and jewellery. His extensive training in glass blowing, jewellery making and sculpture brings a unique quality and form to his work. He uses a technique of trailing coloured glass over each piece to create a rich painterly look where each piece is totally unique.

He was a finalist in the 2006 Norsewear, and winner of Aoteroa Award for Excellence in Glass and the Molly Morpeth Canaday Award 2007.
