Stephen Bradbourne majored in ceramics at Carrington Polytech, Auckland, graduating in 1991 with a Diploma in Craft Design. Within six months, he was offered a job at Garry Nash’s hot glass studio in Ponsonby, where he learnt to blow glass under the guidance of one of New Zealand’s best glass blowers.
