Lynden Over is a New Zealand glass artist living in Taupo. His work is highly regarded and can be found in a number of galleries, private and public collections throughout the country and internationally.
He trained at the Northern Polytechnic where he completed his degree in Applied Arts. On the completion of his study he continued to work in glass, renting a local glass where he developed his own original range of collectable glassware.
In 2002 Lynden moved to Taupo and opened Lava Glass Studio and Gallery. Here Lynden has had the freedom to extend his production range and work at the cutting edge, hand blowing a range of large artistic works and creating some award winning art glass pieces.
Lynden uses a technique of trailing coloured glass in layers over each piece to create a rich painterly look where the result is totally unique.
He was a finalist in Norsewear, 2006 and winner of Aotearoa Award for excellence in glass, molly Morpeth Canaday, 2007. Commissioned to create a large public sculpture for the Taupo District Council as a centre piece of the town centre, 2009 and runner up in the NZSAG exhibition for use of colour, 2010.
