Working Glass was established in Auckland in 2014 by Dionysios Koulizis and Rachel O'Connor.
Rachel is originally from Christchurch, NZ, where her interest in glass began while studying the work of European and American glass artists as part of her degree in Art & Architectural history.
Dionysios comes from Thessaloniki, in northern Greece. His study and experience in glass began in London, England, where he studied traditional stained glass and kiln-fired glassworking techniques.
During two decades of professional studio glass production in Greece they gained a reputation for innovation and excellence, providing top quality original glass tableware, interior design and gift items to fine hotels, galleries and retail outlets throughout Europe.
With their establishment of a new studio in Auckland, New Zealand, they bring the best of their knowledge, experience and love of glass to clients in the New Zealand homeware, hospitality and interior design industries.
