Stephen Bradbourne is a contemporary New Zealand glass artist currently based in Auckland.
He trained in Glass and Ceramics at Carrington Polytechnic, completing both a certificate and diploma in Craft Design. He has worked extensively in the area of blown glass, assisting as head glassblower at a number of production studios, as well as pursuing his own practice.
Bradbourne has exhibited throughout New Zealand in both group and solo exhibitions, and is recognised for his striking blown vessels and platters. While previously his work has utilised muted tones resulting in subtle, moody pieces, his current work in New Zealand glass uses brighter, more vibrant colours with much success.
