Jason Svensen

Jason travels each year from his home in Denmark to Whangarei to work with his good friend (and fellow glass blower extraordinaire) Justin Culina. Every summer we look forward to Jason's arrival and can't wait to see what he creates for us, knowing we will be wowed and impressed with his skill and artistry. His New Zealand work is influenced by his immediate environment while here - the sea and ocean life. Jason's  use of colour and form captures the essence of the sea and the life within  it - corals, fish, seahorses. Born in Denmark, Jason has been blowing glass for over 20 years.  He started at Kosta Boda glass in Sweden followed by galleries and hotshops in New Zealand and Denmark. Self employed for 15 years, Jason has taught and tutored in glass around the world.
