John Penman is a New Zealander who studied Glass Art at the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design in America, before returning home to set up his studio in central Auckland.
Acknowledged as one of very few artists worldwide to use 'photosensitive' glass, John employs it to capture images from the world of nature in a very limited series of vessels. These rare works of glass art are subtle, in contrast to the saturated colour of his other series.
Over three decades, Gallery Pacific has offered select pieces from John Penman's studio, and continues to source works from his library collection. Offered for sale in sets, they may also be purchased individually by arrangement with Gallery Pacific.
