Ivan Polak Sculptor 

(1941-2016)

Glass Art and Contemporary Metal Sculpture 

Exhibited at Soho Galleries Sydney

I like glass as a material and enjoy using many different techniques, not just blowing. I have done slumping with the influence of water and casting, also lead lighting and mosaic. Quite often I like to use glass in my sculptural work if I can, it is like jewellery with the object, something unique and very beautiful.

In 1982, I entered and won the Blake Prize for religious art with a glass piece called 'Children of the sun'. I won the National Sculpture Competition in 1985, for the Vinegar Hill Memorial with Blacktown City Council. I have done many projects for architecture, public and private buildings and churches.

My major work has been in Australia as I have lived here for over twenty years now. I have definitely enjoyed living in Australia; the countryside, travelling and seeing different landscapes and people. I just wish there was more of an orientation to art.
