Luke Jacomb grew up at the centre of the Aotearoa New Zealand glass community,
learning the craft from his late father John Croucher. Following extensive training in North America and Europe during the early 2000s he now marks 30 years as a contemporary glass blower.
Having returned to Aotearoa in 2008, he has used his vast vocabulary of techniques to
masterfully explore what it means to be a contemporary glass blower in the South
Pacific. Recent works include a series if life-size blown glass canoe paddles and boldly
intricate black goblets. Inspired by works created with his late father, Jacomb continues
to push the boundaries of colour and form with the alchemy focused Alembic series and
his interpretive Venetian Kete baskets.
Jacomb is well established on the international glass art scene and his work can be
found in a number notable private and public collections.
