Setsuko Ogishi is one of the few women glassblowers in Australia.
There are few art forms more energy intensive than glassblowing.
Typically, three different furnaces (running upwards of 1000 degrees Celsius) are required to melt the glass, manipulate it, and then slowly cool it down.
It’s an expensive exercise, which is why Setsuko Ogishi says her glass studio in the New South Wales Hunter Valley is one of only a handful in Australia.
“Most of our expense goes to energy. That’s why there are not many studios existing.”
