  • Artist’s Statement

    Making glass is for me an alchemical process, where I need to apply my understanding of the fire and the way it transmutes basic raw opaque materials into a translucent medium. Once this fluid medium is born, the concern with colour begins. In this context, imagery and colour consideration are somewhat more important than the form on which it is applied.

  • Biography

    Marc Kalifa was born in Paris, France in 1951 and moved to Australia in the early 1970s. Surviving Cyclone Tracy in Darwin in 1974, he worked as a jeweller, but soon became fascinated by stained glass and pursued this career producing a lot of commissioned works for significant projects and settled in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. In 1985 whilst on a study tour in Europe, Marc was inspired to change to hot glass and this has been his medium ever since.
