Born in Auckland, New Zealand, Luke Jacomb is a second-generation glass artist who learned the craft from his father, John Croucher, a pioneer in photosensitive techniques for glass art. Jacomb also studied glassmaking at the Corning Museum of Glass in New York and spent eight years training and working in various studios and workshops in the United States.
Jacomb has created a series of blown glass work with Pacific Island themes featuring sculpture based on the forms of paddles and canoes. This work has received recognition in New Zealand and abroad and has been shown in solo gallery exhibitions and museums.
