Poppy Templeton (aka Duck Ragu) is a Naarm based artist exploring colour and light through the medium of glass. She first encountered glass art in her family home on the Queensland coast where her mother’s leadlights sat in the windows. Her own stained-glass plays with pattern and abstraction, allowing the limitations of the medium to dictate design. Using geometric forms reminiscent of building blocks or paper cut-outs, in colour palettes borrowed from sunsets and flowerbeds, her work elicits a warm but vague familiarity. She uses mirrored glass to provide function and works with the traditional Tiffany technique for its delicate quality.
