Llewelyn Ash has always been connected with his surroundings. Growing up in the Adelaide hills enriched his experience of natural flora and fauna.
Art began in the home for him with both parents being artists, Glen Ash, well-known for his oil painting and Janet Ayliffe a celebrated water colour painter and print maker. From a young age Llewelyn started drawing the animals he was surrounded by chooks, ducks, dogs, and donkeys. Surfing then became a major part of Llewelyn’s journey, moving down the South Australian coastline along every peninsula. By incorporating his printmaking designs onto glass, Llewelyn has created his own unique and distinctive style.
Llewelyn recently completed a two year intensive glass blowing training program at the Jam Factory in Adelaide. His work has been exhibited all over Australia. His achievements including the Design Institute of Australia award, finalist in the Australian National Glass Museum Student Award and Winter lights exhibition Federation square, selected as a Jam Factory Associate, the Jam Factory Pilchuck Scholarship in Seattle and won the Young Artist for Whyalla Art Prize, Briton sculpture Prize and Waterhouse Youth Art Prize.
