Until arriving in New Zealand, Chris worked at the highly-respected Neil Wilkin Studios in Frome, Somerset, for more than 5 years. During this time, Chris developed his skills as a glass-maker and worked on pieces for renowned European glass artists such as Peter Bremers and Floris Meydam. We have some absolutely stunning items available here at TAG.
Sara Hughes block sets and original works
These great block sets have been created as part of Auckland artist Sara Hughes installation Willow. The bag contains an assortment of around 100 hand-crafted and hand-painted blocks in various shapes and colours. Only four sets have been produced, so they are extremely limited edition, and there are only 2 sets left. Blocks will vary from set to set, meaning all four editions are one-offs in their own right. A very special present for the kids, or a fun interactive collectible for grown-ups. In addition, we also have a series of 10 unique works created by Sara Hughes. Acrylic on paper, 380 x 560 mm. These are signed, dated and numbered on the back.
