Biography: Patrick Farrugia is a pharmacist by profession and since a very young age has always shown great interest in drawing. However, it was only upon retiring that he has again picked up his passion for art. After a brief spell in oil painting, he has moved on to glass fusion. This involves firing the artwork in a kiln for several hours and at very high temperatures. The light and shadow, shapes,forms, space, depth and distance are thus captured in glass in a realistic and traditional manner, along with the vibrant, lustre and shimmering quality that is uniquely inherent in fusible coloured glass.
