Auckland based glass artist Rebecca Heap produces stunning blown and cast glass artworks that explore geometry, colour and surface. Heap’s pieces are small in scale yet complex in their form.
Her techniques include blowing coloured and clear glass, creating high polished surfaces, frosting elements for effect, strategically placing bubbles, chip effects and blowing into molds.
Heap’s training in the craft of glass began with studies at Whanganui UCOL. She later furthered her studies at the University of Kalmar in Southern Sweden and the National Glass School in Orrefors. Rebecca Heap exhibits her work in galleries throughout New Zealand and her work can be found in private collections in the US, Japan, China, Canada, and Australia.
