Artist - Chris Jones

Taupo based Chris Jones produces vibrant glass pieces that highlight bold colour mixes and pattern.

Originally from the United Kingdom, Chris developed his glass skills at the highly-respected Neil Wilkin Studios in Frome, Somerset. During this time Chris worked on pieces for renowned European glass artists such as Peter Bremers and Floris Meydam. He enjoyed working and learning as an apprentice but was eager to establish his own studio. His move to New Zealand in 2004 gave him this opportunity.

"All I have as a tool is a focus on glass. This new environment, its' delights, its' treasures, are all there for me to enjoy and I hope to express these new experiences in this most elegant of mediums."
