Lisa Bate's glass batteries

Lisa Bate Studio

Lisa creates contemporary art sculptures which are predominantly made using kiln cast glass and mixed media. 

Specialising in kiln cast glass, Lisa’s practice focuses on the lost wax casting technique. This process involves making master moulds, often made from a found object, then uses the wax forms to construct her works which become glass after the kiln firing.

Sculptures are often made in a series, cast glass art works explore repetition of form using deconstruction and reconstruction methods. Interested in kinetics, producing sculptural works that can move or are interchangeable. All sculptures are original and one-off with a limited edition of smaller glass objects.

Her sculptural glass art works have received multiple awards of critical recognition.

Studio visits are always welcome by appointment, please make contact to arrange a time.

Evelyn Dunstan

‘‘Evelyn Dunstan works from her home studio in Auckland, New Zealand.

Coming from an arts background, Evelyn found her niche with lost-wax kiln casting in 2003, and has since explored the qualities of locally made crystal from Gaffer Coloured Glass. Modifying materials, techniques and methods, has allowed her to cast fine detail and control colour placement, taking advantage of the creative freedom for conceptual vision and innovation that the lost wax process encourages.

A passion for her surrounding environment with a strong focus on ecological concerns influence a methodology throughout the work and making process, with the challenge of what is physically possible working solo in the small glass casting studio.
