Glass Artist

Interaction of Colour

Glass is a literally brilliant medium to capture the uniquely detailed perception of colour in Aotearoa - a result of the intense light experienced in the South Pacific.

Combined with the availability of a vast range of glass colours manufactured on John’s doorstep, the use of colour becomes a central theme
throughout most of his work.

To combine different colours in one object asks for complex process in the making - a challenge that has become a
passion manifested in John’s pieces.
