Heather Kremen is a glassblower, artist, and educator. She is currently the owner of Amokura Glass in Rotorua, where she creates fine art glass, elegant functional homeware, and unique decorative objects.
Heather began blowing glass in 2007 when she took her first workshop and she hasn’t stopped since. She has trained and worked in blown and kiln-formed glass, although these days she spends most of her time in the hot shop and teaching.
Heather is passionate about glass art and works to share that passion as broadly as possible, from answering questions from visitors to the gallery to teaching and mentoring aspiring artists. She hopes one day to expand Amokura Glass into a glass school where artists can learn blown, fused, and cast glass techniques.
In her fine art practice, Heather’s current work incorporates fused and blown glass into intricately patterned vessels. These pieces are on display in the gallery at Amokura Glass and have been displayed in Rotorua and across Aotearoa.
