Biography: Evelyn Dunstan

Evelyn Dunstan
Evelyn Dunstan

Evelyn Dunstan works from her home studio in Auckland, New Zealand. Coming from an arts background, Dunstan found her niche with lost wax kiln casting in 2003, and has since explored the qualities of locally made Gaffer crystal. Modifying materials, techniques, and methods has allowed her to cast fine detail and control color placement while taking advantage of the creative freedom for conceptual vision and innovation that the lost wax process encourages.

A passion for her surrounding environment with a strong focus on ecological concerns influence Dunstan’s work and making process and add to the challenge of what is physically possible while working solo in a small studio.

Dunstan’s work is displayed in exhibitions, public, and private collections around the world. Dunstan passes on her unique approach to the lost wax process by teaching in New Zealand, Australia, the United States, Turkey, and Murano.
