Evelyn Dunstan works from her home studio in Tāmaki Maukarau (Auckland), New Zealand.
Coming from an arts background, Evelyn found her niche with lost-wax kiln casting in 2003, & has since explored the qualities of locally made crystal from Gaffer Coloured Glass. Modifying materials, techniques, & methods have allowed her to cast fine details & control colour & placement, taking advantage of the creative freedom that the lost wax process encourages.
Evelyn’s work reflects her passion for the environment & strongly focuses on ecological concerns. These interests have directly influenced her methodology & process along with the practical challenges of working from a small studio space. Through her innovative approach to the medium Evelyn has developed a language & vocabulary that speaks of our connections, visualised through the characteristics of flora & fauna.
Her work is displayed in exhibitions, & public & private collections around the world & she passes on her unique approach to the lost-wax process of teaching in New Zealand, Australia, the USA, Turkey, & Italy.
