Glass art by Greg Swinburne
Greg left Wanganui in 1981 and returned in 2000 to finish studying. Now residing and working in Wanganui.
Among other things Greg has worked for David Murray and Emma Camden. At present working part-time for Katie Brown. Greg blows glass at either New Zealand glassworks or his own small furnace, and the final cutting, grinding and polishing is done at his Lowther st studio.
At present I am selling work through Form gallery in Christchurch, Real Aotearoa in Wellington, The Poi Room in Auckland, Tennyson gallery in Napier, NZAFA in Wellington, Quadrant gallery in Dunedin, Artform in Matakana, and in Whangarei, Burning Issues.
