Glass artist Matt Durran on curiousity, collaboration, and the importance of communication

Matt is an glass artist, innovator and curator creating work that explores ideas. He has created a working practice based on ‘itchy feet’ wherein he develops opportunities to further his knowledge of glass and all its permutations by collaborating far and wide.

In this episode we talk about the numerous benefits of working outside of the crafts or arts environment, including how it challenges him to learn more about his materials and processes, increases the value of his knowledge, and feeds back into his studio practice.

Matt’s approach is as refreshing as it is inspiring, and offers a completely different take on a career in crafts that moves beyond a gallery-oriented practice.

Other topics we cover:

  • the often overlooked value of craft knowledge
  • the benefits and challenges of collaborating with industry
  • the importance of developing multiple strands of work
  • allowing ideas to dictate process, materials and methods
