"The Waka is a traditional Maori canoe that was used extensively by early Maori for transport, fishing and in warfare. Here recreated in handcrafted crystal, Waka imbues simplicity of design that evokes a bygone era."
Greg's cast glass Waka series speak of journeys and heritage within the South Pacific. Light spills through the works allowing a sense of depth while bringing our attention to the intricately engraved hull.
"In my work I aim for a strong sense of expression and dialogue, but also for continuing technical excellence".
With a thirty year history in the medium of glass, Greg has developed a distinctive style, which is a statement of 'who I am' and 'where I come from'. Greg has been a tutor in glass for over twenty years as well as continuing his practice as an artist.
Greg recently was commissioned with a project to design and make 32 stained glass panels for the Whanganui District Council Chambers.
