Gavin Heath

heath1_over glassGavin Heath was born in Cape Town, South Africa on October 23, 1961. Gavin was exposed to a variety of cultures and experiences courtesy of eclectic and progressive parents.

California became home for Heath in 1987. Ironically, Heath found himself for the first time willingly pursuing formal education. Glass blowing began at Palomar College in San Diego from 1987 to 1990. Development and refinement of existing skills was undertaken at Seattle’s famed Pilchuck Glass School in ”89. Heath completed formal pursuit of art education in ’92 while blowing glass at California State University at Fullerton.
Heath now resides in California with his daughters Czara, Zoe and son Brandon.
He enjoys excellent representation in galleries throughout the United States. International representation includes Japan, Korea, Germany, Canada, and quite recently, a new South Africa gallery.
