Heike Brachlow was born in Germany, but discovered glass whilst living in New Zealand. Brachlow draws her inspiration from her travels, human interaction, architecture and geometry.
Brachlow fights the limitated palette of colour placed on her by her medium, she makes her own glass colours, adding metal oxides to the glass batch during the melting process. As part of her research, she is exploring the interaction of colour, form and light in solid transparent glass with in her person palette.
