NZ glass koru. New Zealand glass artists Ian and Tokiko from Venus Hot Glass create these beautiful koru. And yes, these are the original glass koru! Made in New Zealand!
Green glass koru with a touch of blue. Venus Hot Glass is a small Christchurch-based glass-studio operated by Ian Walters and Tokiko Tatemoto.
Yes, made in our beautiful Aotearoa – New Zealand! One of our most popular NZ made gifts. Also loved by corporate businesses and some of our NZ Government departments.
The glass is made from silica sand which comes from Mt Somers in scenic mid-Canterbury. Then the sand is mixed with other minerals and melted in a furnace at 1300 degrees Celsius to form molten glass. Keeping the glass hot, enables Ian and Tokiko to add colour and manipulate it into funky koru glass art.
Hand-crafted hot glass art gifts.
