Following my life long dream to blow glass I studied at Wanganui Ucol and in my final year won a glass design scholarship to the University of Kalmar in southern Sweden. I was based in the heart of the Kingdom of Crystal where they have been blowing glass since long before Captain Cook first landed in New Zealand. After the scholarship semester I apprenticed at Pukeberg Glasbruk for two years then undertook post graduate studies at the National Glass School in Orrefors where I taught part time and later took on a full time position. Over the summer holidays I had the privilege of blowing glass in the historic Orrefors glassworks.
In the spring of 2011 I returned home after spending five years in Sweden. My pieces are created in the hotshop at Burning Issues Whangarei. I complete all the refining and polishing in my studio in Auckland and take visitors by appointment.
