A Brief but Spectacular Take on Glassroots recycling

PBS Newshour, 28 January 2023: https://www.pbs.org/newshour/show/a-brief-but-spectacular-take-on-glassroots-recycling


by Caroline Miley. Australian Scholarly Publishing North Melbourne 2022. Christian Waller’s exemplary skills and achievements as an Australian stained-glass artist are brought to light in this superb book. A leading proponent of Modernism in Australian art and the sole woman professional stained-glass artist in Australia until the 1970s, she was greatly admired for her mastery of technique, brilliant design, originality, and sumptuous use of colour. Her individual work was extensive and always strongly in demand, though in a male-dominated art world, since her death she has been overshadowed by the reputation of her husband, Napier Waller.
