Before becoming a full time glass jewellery artist, Buzz was a professional Paua diver, and made art with paua shells. He still loves the sea and all the life in it.
Each of these pieces, inspired by Buzz's diving all around New Zealand and Australia, and exploring in nature with his kids on land, is hand drawn by him. He draws the designs onto tape that is on the glass, then carefully cuts away the tape and sandblasts the design in many stages. He controls the direction and pressure of the sand to get exactly the effects he wants from orchestrating light within the glass.
He enjoys this expression of himself as an artist, making unique, one-off pieces of jewellery that can be treasured by their owners for years to come.
Please see the details about each piece for measurements.
