DVD Video documentary
Stephen Procter: Reflections of a Glass Artist, records the thoughts and philosophies of the artist and glassmaker who for a number of years headed the Glass Department of the Australian National University School of Art. It traces his career in glass working from his first interest developed through a pointillist technique while living on Dartmoor; through his British Council-funded grant that enabled him to learn glass blowing and cutting techniques in Austria; to the mature landscape paintings and glass sculptures created during his years living in Australia.
Procter’s recollections and philosophies are captured during videoed interviews conducted during the last months of his life. Extracts from the interviews are interpolated with sequences showing his works, his studio and equipment, his actual working methods, and scenes from the landscapes that were the inspiration for his artistry and output.
