Glass House Mountains

The Glass house Mountains are one of the most recognisable geographical features in South East Qld. They attracted the attention of the earliest explorers and settlers and have been a feature of the folk lore and stories of the Aborigine First Nation people.

From the Sunshine Coast hinterland where I live I look out on this magnificent vista every day and wonder at their beauty which changes every day depending on the weather and how the sun reflects on them.

I have climbed each mountain and enjoyed the views of the surrounding country side from all angles. I felt compelled to emulate their panorama on a slab f reclaimed local White Beech.

My aim was not only to portray the beauty of the mountains but to pay tribute to the First Nation people and Traditional Owners of the land who had a story (legend) about the mountains and named them sons before Captain Cook christened them as the Glass house Mountains.

I acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the mountains and surrounding land and to pay my respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and to Elders past, present and emerging who have lived in this area and to honour them by being able to reproduce this landscape and the legend that has been passed down from generation to generation.
