Glass artist Paul Burgham’s love of nature is reflected in his work. Bright yellow kowhai, paua, fern, flax, and volcanoes feature in his lamps which take centre stage in his upcoming exhibition ‘Illumination’.

Paul attributes this love of nature to his mother’s teachings and the later influence of Art Nouveau, Art Deco and the Arts and Crafts Movement. The exhibition has eight of Paul’s contemporary lamps on show, impressive and imposing works, each of which have hours of work to complete. Paul developed a passion for stained glass windows which lead to lamps which he says has kept him occupied for the last 17 years.

Recently Paul finished a huge commission for the design, fabrication and installation of new stained-glass windows for the Mary Phelan chapel at New Plymouth Sacred Heart Girls’ College. It took one and a half years to complete from conception stage.
