Evelyn Dunstan is born in 1961 in Auckland city. She started glass casting in 2003 after a 25 years career as a graphic artist, designer and illustrator in various industries. She has a home studio where she experiments with glazes, slip casting, raku, moulds, firing, and learning new skills with metal sculpture - welding and bronze casting, wood, concrete, stone carving, stained glass, lead-lighting and mosaics. Evelyn has participated in many exhibitions and is represented in galleries in NZ , Australia, and the USA where her works are displayed alongside the most notable names. Using a language that speaks of our connections, visualized through the characteristics of flora and fauna, her focus continues to be in developing the ideas that also encompass researching methods and experimenting with techniques further.
