Lyndsay Patterson graduated in 1999 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Wanganui Polytechnic.
Lyndsay is a well-known maker of contemporary NZ glass and has exhibited widely both in New Zealand and internationally. His work is held in public and private collections including Te Papa Tongarewa Museum of New Zealand and The Dowse Art Museum.
He has twice been a finalist in the Australian based Ranamok Glass Prize and has been a recipient of the prestigious Thomas Glass Award by The Dowse Art Museum.
Lyndsay has spent the last several years making the glassware for 'The Hobbit' trilogy of movies. “From wine bottles to street lanterns, the making of glassware for these movies has been a fantastic opportunity for me to explore a number of new areas of glass production. The large volume and wide variety of glassware required for these movies has challenged me as a maker and certainly enhanced my current practice”.
Lyndsay is co-owner of the well known Chronicle Glass Studio and Gallery situated in the historic 'Old Town' precinct of Whanganui.
