About the studio –
The Glass Gallery – an art studio based along the coast and beneath Mt. Taranaki inspired by exploring and exposing the effects of 'Glass, on Light'.
Established in 1987 to fulfil a fascination with form and light through my lifelong medium of glass, The Glass Gallery started from my small studio space at our home in Hawera. Fast-forward more than 30 years in business and we’ve created not only a larger studio and gallery featuring award-winning works, but with the help of my gardening–guru wife, a sculptural trail within our beautiful garden and homestead in New Plymouth.
From concept through to finished piece, each step is done by hand with meticulous attention to quality and detail, with influences drawn from the lifestyle and tastes of each client, the architectural space and important personal details that make my works special and individual to you. Each commission brings its own challenge – one that drives my passion for art and design. And, while the scale of my projects may shift, from residential to corporate facilities, churches to marae, galleries and public spaces, each is bound by unwavering craftsmanship, thought and considered detail.
I strive to preserve the beauty and traditions of hand craftsmanship in an ever-growing mass-produced world. All of my designs are still hand drawn and constructed by hand with love, elbow grease and some good ol’ kiwi ingenuity.
