Stuart Park has been collecting New Zealand glass for over 40 years. He takes an historical interest in documenting the pieces he collects, and has been very grateful for the willingness of many of New Zealand’s glass artists to provide information about their work.
He contributed an historical background essay to the book New Zealand Glass Art published by NZSAG and David Bateman Ltd in 2010. Stuart participated in a glass-blowing course in Whanganui in 2003, confirming his view that he is a collector and not a maker. As such he has enjoyed Associate Membership in NZSAG for quite a number of years.
Stuart writes an occasional blog at http://newzealandglass.blogspot.com/. When that became full, he started a continuation at https://nzglass2.blogspot.com/.
