"Venus Hot Glass is a small Christchurch-based glass blowing studio established in 1997 by glass artists Ian Walters and Tokiko Tatemoto - Tokiko is now the main producer of pieces. They make their glass from a mixture of minerals including silica sand from Mt. Somers in the mid-Canterbury region.
They are the original glass Koru creators, but they also make a wide range of other glass products including: bowls, vases, perfume bottles and paperweights.
Heritage Gallery has had a long association with Venus Hot Glass."
