Lyndsay Patterson graduated in 1999 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Wanganui Polytechnic. 

Lyndsay is a highly regarded 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 New Dowse. 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 New Dowse.  More recently Lyndsay has been engaged with the production glassware for “The Hobbit” trilogy of movies.  “Making glassware for these movies has been such 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 iconic Chronicle Glass Studio and Gallery situated in the historic “Old Town” precinct of Whanganui.
