Evelyn Dunstan

Evelyn works from her home studio in Auckland, New Zealand. Coming from 25 years in commercial art - primarily illustration, design, graphics in the advertising, photography, publishing and print industries and an art director for a publishing company. 

With a need to develop her own expression through art and more family time lead to a change of career as a sculptural artist in 2002. Stained glass lead to her niche of lost-wax glass casting in 2003. A medium combining colour with light, depth and dimension and an endless source of possibilities and technical challenges. Avoiding the status quo in terms of direction, technique and subject matter set her apart from other glass artists.

A casting course in 2004 introduced her to other artists, with involvement in the glass community. She became the editor for NZSAG from 2006, producing the quarterly glass magazine and then a book on NZ glass artists in 2010. Collaborations and attending other workshops has furthered her knowledge and in different glass. Her work is displayed in public and private collections around the world. She participates in selected and invited exhibitions and along with a fair share of national awards.

Exploring the qualities of locally made Gaffer crystal through modifying materials and techniques, allowing her to take advantage of the creative freedom for conceptual innovation. This gave her the ability to cast intricate detail, textures and control colour placement.

With a passion for her surrounding environment and a strong focus on ecological concerns continue to influence her work and making process. Facing the challenge of working solo in a small studio, while aiming to communicate shared connections through the visual characteristics of flora and fauna. Continuing a focus in developing her ideas while encompassing experimentation with techniques and research methods.
