- Object & craft
Jo Tricker: Artist | Designer | Glassmaker
I am fascinated by glass – by its ability to transform itself from a solid to a liquid and back to a solid again! For me it is the endless fascination of where science and art meet.
I use kiln-forming and flameworking techniques to make a variety of beautiful glass objects – both functional and sculptural. My work reflects my passion for colour and pattern with inspiration sourced from the other things I love! – travelling, literature, books, music, dance, my children and my family history.
I run regular art glass workshops in my 70 sq m studio on the edge of the Waikareao walkway in Judea, Tauranga.
I have attended many Masterclasses in glass with both New Zealand and International tutors. I have two apprenticeships in Medical Laboratory Technology, a BA in English Literature, a Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages, and a Certificate in Graphic Design.
I absolutely love what I do!
