Being an innovative craftsman fits comfortably with Glen Colechin’s engineering background.
With a past career in product design and production engineering, he has a sound foundation with the skills to drive his creative core. “Art is everywhere,” Glen explains. “You need that creative eye to see it. That’s what makes me a good engineer.”
It was a balancing act working in a demanding day job and squeezing every moment from weekends and after hours to develop a stable of sculpted art pieces that have now taken the market by storm.
Glen recently uploaded photographs of a couple of pieces on social media and was inundated by nearly a thousand enquires from as far afield as Dubai, New York, and throughout New Zealand. He has recently transitioned to Full-time Artist and focuses his creative energy on fulfilling his passion and delivering his beautifully crafted sculptures to clambering customers.
